Dragonfruit is this gorgeous fuchsia colored fruit that looks like kiwi. I thought that dragonfruits only grow in the west, I did not now that we have a dragonfruit farm here in Cebu! It is a must-see!
The fruit is basically bland on its own, but blending it with some milk and sugar makes a lot of difference. This glass of dragonfruit shake is actually full of nutrients so it is a must-try!
Dragonfruit does grow in the tropics and is locally known as Pitaya. As mentioned, it is similar to kiwi and can even be compared to watermelon. It is very juicy. Although the fruit does not give so much flavor, the full color it gives is enough reason to pour a glassful of its blended version into a clear glass. It certainly looks so good and appetizing!
The fruit is full of fiber, magnesium, vitamins C & E and iron so it is a very good body supplement. You can add the fruit to your regular diet!
The farm is open to the public for visitation. After the short tour, you can head on to the cafe, just a couple of steps from the farm. In their small cafe, you can try their dragonfruit shake fresh from the farm!
