The Tropical Dragon Fruit is an exotic cactus fruit that has a delicately sweet and mildly acidic flavor, reminiscent of watermelon, cactus pear, and kiwi. All Melissa's Dragon Fruit plants flower at night and emit a jasmine-like fragrance. The fruit itself is round and its exterior ranges in color from a hot pink to red. The interior color of dragon fruit ranges from white to pink to magenta. All three types have tiny, edible black seeds (very similar to those found inside Kiwi). This fruit does not grow well in winter cold or summer heat, so its availability is limited, making it a highly prized treat. The melon-like texture of the Dragon Fruit makes it ideal for blending in drinks as well as using in sorbets.

Melissa's Dragon Fruit are hand-selected for excellent quality. Melissa's Dragon Fruit should be kept refrigerated, unwashed, for up to 5 days. Best served chilled.

Imported Dragon Fruit (white flesh) is available year round.
Domestic Dragon Fruit (white flesh and Magenta flesh) is only available Aug-Dec typically.

This item is perishable and must ship at least 2nd day.

Any orders that do not have the appropriate shipping method selected will not be shipped out. For assistance, please call us at 800-588-0151.

Fresh and tasty! September 3, 2014
Reviewer: Natalia from MA United States  
This was my first order and chose the magenta dragon fruit. I had no luck finding it my local grocery stores. When I received my dragon fruit they were very fresh and tasty. The size of the fruit I was very pleased (3 large ones) . Also Nick from was very helpful and delivered exceptional customer service. I will definitely order again and will recommend my family and friends to order from Melissa's produce!
