This plant is actually a type of cactus. It can be grown indoors. The exotic looking fruits typically weigh a little under 1 pound each, and they have a texture like Kiwi fruit.
Dragon Fruit can be eaten raw or dried or made into juice or wine. The fruit has a mildly sweet taste, and the flowers can be eaten or steeped as tea. I was also excited to learn that it is low in calories & high in vitamins & minerals.
