My 13-year-old son’s Exotic Fruit Challenge: Dragonfruit.
Reminds us of: watermelon crossed with kiwi.
Texture: like a grainy kiwi.
Flavor: like watermelon but not as sweet and with seeds like kiwi.
Verdict: very good!
Explore exotic fruit in this lovely board book that might entice your kids to try dragonfruit and more!

Mangosteen, pineapple, kiwi, lychee, durian, starfruit, wax apple, and jackfruit are also included and will inform our Exotic Fruit Challenge! [board book, for ages 2 and up]
