Brother Virg refers to Florida as the land of sunshine and honey~~where the sun shines over the sea and everyone calls you "honey." Southern sweetness to go with peaches and cream, kiwi and mangoes, plantains and dragon fruit.
Unfamiliar to me, dragon fruit turned up at the grocery store this week and curiosity put it in my shopping cart. I asked the cashier what it was like and she called the manager over to give me an answer. "It tastes like a cross between kiwi and cucumber," he said.
Slicing it in half as I would an avocado,
I scooped the flesh from the pink cup with a spoon.
Delicious. Subtle. Refreshing.
Another one of Eden's sweet enchantments.
