Cook's Note:

When selecting a dragon fruit, feel the stem. It should bend without breaking when you touch it. If it is brittle, move on. The fruit should feel slightly spongy, almost like a kiwi. If it is very firm, leave it for a day or two and check again. The skin should be a bright pink color. Chilling it brings out the flavor.
