Love the funky colours of dragonfruit. Red, white and the Pink Ice (a variety developed by our stallholder John Picone, of Picone Exotics), are all in season or coming into season now. So refreshing with a squeeze of lime, and they look amazing in a fruit salad. John also recommends cutting your red dragonfruit into 1cm rounds and char grilling on the barbecue.
