dragon crystal

The dragon fruit is native to Mexico, however throughout history was cultivated in Asia and other parts of the world with warm climates.

In Thailand they are known as, kaeo mangko, which means, dragon crystal. They can be found in pretty much every market any time of year. Depending on the season, the price and type of dragon fruit varies.

They are a tasty, refreshing and sweet fruit with an interesting texture. The tiny black seeds add a slight crunchiness, combined with a soft sweet fruit ‘meat’.

My aim here was to focus on popular Thai foods found in Thai households, however I have been slightly sidetracked and collecting what ever is lying around in my kitchen…. I am combining them with favourite fabrics of mine, some double exposure and some not. Dragonfruit, I wouldn’t say is a very Thai fruit, however it is still common and was in my kitchen after all… plus it is colourful and quite an interesting shape…
