My supermarket score: dragon fruit (pink) and starfruit.
Preparing the fruit. You see all that pink stuff on the dragon fruit? It looks pretty but it's really just a thick peel. You can remove it off pretty easily if you cut the dragon fruit into quarters length wise. The flesh inside is white and speckled. The starfruit just needs to be washed and cut. When you do slice it up, it looks like little stars, hence the name! Fun. I want to add fruity stars to all my dinners now.
