Slice the dragon

So we sliced it open last night and had it for dessert. What a shock to see how gorgeous it was on the inside. The rind creates a substantial fuschia ring, and the fruit is white speckled with tiny black seeds. It tasted like a cross between a kiwi and honeydew melon, but very soft and mild. But one of the more striking combinations I've ever seen. Very cool.

Glad to see you tried it! I think it is very refreshing. What can you say bad about a hot pink fruit! You did a great job on both of the paintings.

I like the reflections. The colors of the fruit are beautiful and plate are beautiful.

Luscious--the painting and how it seems the fruit must have tasted.
