A ripe dragon fruit usually seems to taste mildly sweet, similar to a mix of kiwi and pear, with a texture as that of a ripe soft kiwi and a flavour that is quite delicate on the tongue.
There are three to four varieties of dragon fruit, an identifiable taste to just a couple of them though.
A ripe white dragon fruit usually tastes slightly sweet, while an unripe dragon fruit tastes bland and may have a hint of sourness.
With a yellow skin and white flesh, this type has a lot more flavour compared to the others, is sweeter and has a pleasant aroma.
The taste may be towards sweet, the pulp of the fruit is creamy, firm, juicy and crisp dotted with the crunch of tiny seeds throughout, which are edible and safe.
Many people seem to even enjoy dragon fruit once they have moved past the idea of engaging with such an unusual looking fruit.
