this is the first time i've seen a dragonfruit plant. the first time i tried it i was expecting it to be flavorful since its color is so vibrant. how do the vietnamese prepare the fruit?

Hi ruschka, We make lots different juices with dragon fruit or you can eat it fresh. It'll be sweet if you eat in the summer.
