Chef Ralph Pagano is back to tell us all about dragonl fruit in his QuickBytes. And here’s just a taste: dragon fruit is loaded with vitamins and minerals.

So be sure to join Chef Pagano in the kitchen, as he whips us some tasty recipes. He’s using dragon fruit courtesy of 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, Southeast Asia and Israel.
