Yellow Dragon Fruit Box
Hylocereus megalanthus, is a type of Dragon Fruit plant native to northern South America, which belongs to the cactus family. The fruit produced by this plant is officially known as Yellow Dragon Fruit. Yellow Dragon Fruit is the sweetest variety of dragon fruit, and is certainly one of our favorites. Ripe dragon fruit can range from mildly sweet to immensely sweet, with a blend of tropical flavors reminiscent of watermelon, kiwi, and pear. Dragon fruits are oftentimes eaten chilled, by simply slicing the fruit in half and scooping out the wonderful pulp with a spoon. The fruit is also commonly peeled and cut into cubes or slices for serving in all kinds of creative fruit dishes. The translucent white flesh of the fruit is juicy and refreshing. There are many small edible seeds suspended throughout the fruit flesh which are soft, and inseparable from the fruit, and thus always eaten. However, the skin or peel of the fruit is not edible.
Dragon fruits are an excellent source of essential nutrients and vitamins. The seeds contain essential fatty acids Omega-3, Omega-9, as well as other healthy oils.
Yellow Dragon Fruit is harvested once it becomes a bright yellow color. Our Dragon Fruit is always shipped ripe and ready to eat; therefore, no ripening phase is required once you receive your box.
We recommend placing a Pre-Order on our Yellow Dragon Fruit when it is not listed as In-Season. Pre-Orders are a great way for you to reserve your box of Dragon Fruit ahead of the Seasonal Rush.
