Dragon Fruit ....How sweet ?

I recently had my first Dragon Fruit So how sweet do they get ? The one I had while refreshing was so so and really not as sweet as I would have liked.

  1. I don't find them especially sweet, actually. Kind of like a pear- not a similar flavor but a sort of mild refreshing flavor.

    1. The ones i've had don't get all that sweet. Nor do they have a particularly strong flavor. And the texture isn't quite soft / juicy, nor is it crispy / crunchy. yet, I enjoy it immensely. ON a hot day, they are very refreshing because somehow it all works together.

      1. it really never had much of flavor to me... it is pretty..but kind of like under ripe asian pear

        1. I have only had them 2 or 3 times. They were never very sweet or very sour to me. They are like the bland version of Kiwi fruit.

          1. I get them locally and fresh picked, and they really don't get intensely sweet - it's a fairy mild flavour.
