And the red variety of Dragon fruit contains lycopene – a natural antioxidant known to fight cancer and heart disease. So be sure to join Chef Pagano in the kitchen, as he whips us some tasty recipes. He’s using Dragon fruit — courtesy of a South Florida based grower — J&C Tropicals. This third-generation, family-owned produce company grows, packs, imports, and distributes tropical roots, fruits and vegetables—WORLDWIDE! They’ve been around for over 50-years. And besides South Florida, Dragon fruit is also grown in South and Central America, Mexico, South-East Asia and Israel. Tune-in to QuickBytes and help Chef Pagano slay the Dragon fruit.
