Dragon fruit

Not the kind with an inside composed of those small black seeds embedded in that boringly tasteless whitish grey stuff, oh no. This one, when you cut it open, has those same small black seeds, but amid a beetroot red and juicy flesh. Really sweet and tasty. The lady at my fruit and veg says the red-inside ones are only available in the summer, and come from Malaysia.

Retail? Six Hong Kong dollars on a little island in the South China Sea. Menu plan: eat half for dessert, eat the other half as part of breakfast.
