I know in my occasional posts about fun food, it's been mainly packaged products but I can't think of any food that's more fun than thanh long (Vietnamese dragon fruit). The appearance of the bright fuchsia cactus fruit with its bright green scales, trailing from vines is just so arresting that many people expect an equally bold flavor. Actually, its black-speckled inside is very subtle, rather reminiscent of kiwi and prickly pear cactus fruit. I grew dragon fruit in my garden last year. These pictures are from my youngest uncle's garden. Enjoy! :)
