Slaying the dragon(fruit)

While my parents were here they were served some dragon fruit on one of our flights, but I didn't get a chance to show them what a cool looking fruit it is. 
So this is for them ... and anyone else who hasn't had a chance to try dragon fruit.  It comes in awesome looking natural packaging, is delicious (has the texture of a kiwi fruit and the seeds taste just like kiwi seeds, so it ends up seeming pretty similar) and was easy to prepare (the skin peels off cut pieces easily). 
Jason and I were curious how these are grown and with a quick search found they actually grow on the end of a type of cactus vine!!  So crazy!
