 :o :o :o

I wonder if a notorious (!) member of this forum would like the seeds to grow with his "pretty flowers" of the onion weed??

Nope, on second thoughts he might just want to plant them in his mom's garden as well - not a good idea....

Regarding the Dragon fruit: While living in Taiwan we ate them quite regularly as they were common and not expensive in season. They were always very tasty, like a cross between a kiwi and a pineapple.

Back home I bought one out of nostalgia, and were we disappointed! Expensive, watery and bland by comparison.

So buy them when in the tropics, but not here!

Regards.

Thanks for that, Clemens - don't think I'll ever get to the tropics so I'll rather spend my money on other fruit!

Occassionaly I see the red ones on the supermarket shelf but under the circumstance I will leave them there.

Hi All
When I was much younger and my grandfather had a farm we used to eat these berries. They have a very distinct flavour as Eddie has mentioned and once you get used to them they are quite nice eating.

You're spot on, LeRoy - I waited till they turned completely black and now I like them........
