  • 1 yellow dragon fruit


  • Place the dragon fruit on a clean cutting board.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut in half lengthwise down the middle.
  • Slide a spoon in between the skin and the flesh (like you might do for an avocado or kiwi). Scoop out the flesh and repeat for the other half. Optional: reserve the skin for serving.
  • Chop the flesh into chunks or slice it widthwise.
  • Arrange in the reserved skin or use as directed in recipes.


  • Many people prefer the taste of chilled dragon fruit, so you may wish to store it in the refrigerator.
  • Yield: 1 yellow dragon fruit yields approximately 1 1/2 cups of cut fruit.
  • Uses: Cut dragon fruit is an excellent addition to smoothies and fruit salads, pairing well with other tropical fruits such as mango and pineapple.
  • Storage: Cut dragon fruit can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 1 day or frozen for up to 3 months (note the texture will soften during freezing).
