Time to harvest some of our dragon fruit. No, not this one. Maybe next week but today I have to get the very ripe fruit in the back of the plant.
Not as easy as it seems. The dragon fruit plant is a type of cactus so it will be tricky to reach around to the back through all the needles.
I do manage with minimal damage and get these two. Just in the nick of time, too, as you can see one fruit already split.
Once picked, it's an easy job to cleave it in two...
...and scoop out the sweet pulp inside.
We sample some of the flesh and it's much sweeter than last year's bland crop.
I'm going to mix it with a little vanilla ice cream, put some caramel on top, and enjoy.
