As usual, you can click on the images to see them “in big”, but I’ve copied out my rambling notes for those of you not inclined to incline …

1 April 2007 DRAGON FRUIT ~ I bought this tropical fruit (PITAYA) at the supermarket today, fascinated by its wacky bright pink colour and twisty, spiky, greenish-yellow scales. It cost £2.29! This is not an April Fool’s joke.

2 April 2007 ~ The unexpected insides of the dragon fruit. Quite juicy, with a subtle flavour, like kiwi fruit without the sweetness.
