I found it to have a mild, pleasant sweetness flavor that was very refreshing.
Like other fruits with an intense color, such as watermelon and mangos, the flesh is bright pink in sight (due to the natural pigment anthocyanin). This fruit has a light crunch texture owing to its many irregular sized pockets of differing bulk density; it is light enough to be eaten raw without requiring any further pretreatment. It can also be cooked into various savory dishes or made into drinks by adding sugar and spices.
The external skin of dragon fruit leaves jagged lines on your hands because the cells near the edge are swollen than those at center.
