The sweet flavor and vibrant colors of these three new varieties also make each perfect for adding to salads, pastries, beverages, smoothies, sherbets, sorbets, and juices.
Yellow Dragon Fruit, the sweetest of all the dragon fruit varieties, has a bright yellow skin with smooth curved spines on the outside and a translucent white flesh on the inside with slightly larger but fewer edible seeds than the pink-skinned varieties.
When biting into the flesh of Yellow Dragon Fruit, you will get a rush of sweetness mixed with a floral juice. The fruit can be added to smoothies and smoothie bowls, made into sorbet or granita, or used for sauces, but there is no need to do anything other than just eat the fruit as-is. Peel off the inedible yellow skin and cut the dragon fruit into slices or spoon the fruit right out of the peel, as you might eat a melon.
Ripe Yellow Dragon Fruit will give slightly to gentle pressure. To ripen fruit, leave at room temperature for one to two days. Refrigerate ripe fruit in a crisper drawer up to three or four days.
