Selecting tips

  • When buying dragon fruit select the fruit that has bright pink skin that is evenly coloured.
  • Dragon fruit is ready to eat when it’s still slightly firm, you can test its ripeness much like an avocado by gently pressing your thumb against the fruit.
  • Avoid fruit that contains many brown blotches; this is common indication that the fruit is overripe.
