Any fruit will give you energy--they are full of sugar/carbs.

Dragon fruit is also called pitaya--it's very common in Latin America.

My family tried it recently and none of us liked it.
If we were to have it again, I would put it in a fruit salad or something because it was really bland.

No, so why did it get a mention on Dr Oz? Is it supposed to be really good for you?

It tastes like a cross between a pear and a kiwi.

Yes. It looks gorgeous, but sadly tastes of very little - not worth the money

texture like a soft kiwi - flavour very mild... they're very pretty to look at but almost a little bland... they are actually the flower of a cactus-type of plant. as I recall they are pretty low-cal, too.

I love dragon fruit! I'm sure they showed pictured of it on the show, but in case the didn't once you peel it the inside is white with very small black edible seeds. The texture reminds me of a kiwi.
