Dragonfruit Soda

This morning I went with Tiko to San Jose, a barrio on the other side of Vilcabamba, a beautiful, lush area. I went to my friends’ house – Susannah and Phil, who sold me some parsley, much-needed celery plants and dragonfruit trees! Woohoo. You dig a shallow hole, fill it half with sand, then plant the tree and built up a mound around it. It’s helpful to have a frame for it to climb up, as you would a vine. The dragonfruit is a type of pitahaya, great for the stomach, and tastes sweet and soft, like a calm kiwi. I love them.
