the price you have to for convenience. the h-mart down the street is expensive too but their seafood is really fresh. my mom goes to ranch market all the time now bc she doesn't have to drive all the way to chinatown and deal with shitty drivers and traffic.

it's got this subtle sweetness, not over the top like lychee, firm flesh and has little black seeds in them that look like sesame seeds, if i had to compare it to a fruit i'd say pear. there's the red flesh ones and the white flesh dragonfruit, both taste the same to me.

So you just eat all the white part, seeds and all? I found one at Wal-Mart a while back and was about to buy it but ended up not getting it...Or maybe it was HEB
