FAQs about dragonfruit
Dragonfruit is an antioxidant-rich fruit that's low in calories. Scientists have studied the antibacterial and nutritional properties for their ability to help with digestion, enhance the immune system, and increase energy levels. This fruit includes the following vitamins and nutrients:
- Dietary fiber: Dragonfruit is loaded with fiber, boasting 7 grams for each 1-cup serving. Fiber assists with digestion and keeps you full, so it can help with weight management.
- Iron: Dragonfruit is one of the few fruits with iron, which boosts your immunity and energy level.
- Magnesium: This mineral is essential for cell function, and dragonfruit has almost 25% of the recommended daily amount.
- Vitamin C: This vitamin boosts your immune system, helps your body absorb iron, and promotes healthy skin.
When you bring dragonfruit home from the store, you can keep ripe fruit on the counter for several days. To keep the fruit even longer, place it in a sealed plastic bag and put it in the refrigerator. You want to seal the bag because the fruit can pick up odors and flavors from other foods in the refrigerator.
Avoid cutting the dragonfruit until you want to eat it. After it's cut, the fruit should be refrigerated in a tightly sealed container where it will keep for up to five days, depending on how ripe it already is.
You can also freeze dragonfruit. Peel the fruit and cut it into small cubes. Place the fruit on a baking sheet, and freeze it for three hours. Transfer the frozen fruit to a freezer-safe bag or container, and put the fruit in the freezer. It will keep for nine to 12 months.
