  13. Talking about dragon fruit, I have just eaten one the other day. Red flesh ones. They said the white flesh ones are the original o. Is it true? They said the red ones were genetically modified. Hmm...makes me wonder.

  14. Now I know why it is called Dragon! Because from these pictures...the buds' leaves looks like dragon scales. No wonder they call them dragon fruits! The dragons used to eat this? Or did the dragons become these fruits? LOL :P

  21. I think I saw in a TV documentary some time ago that mentioned that all dragon fruits that are locally grown have red flesh. True?

  24. Tekkaus,
    i'm so glad you liked my contribution for WW. :)

    as far as i know, the red flesh varieties are natural antioxidants. there's no such thing as genetically modified.

  25. ECL,
    my garden has no space for this plant. There are fields of them around my neighborhood.

  26. lina,
    from what i've heard, the locally grown dragon fruits can be either red flesh or white flesh varieties.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I've tried the white ones, I like it. So that's how the plant looks like, similar to a cactus. TFS!
