Dragon fruit is a tropical fruit that has become increasingly popular in recent years, especially in fruit drinks and teas. But it still isn't exactly a staple at salad bars. The fruit, which grows on a cactus, is believed to have health benefits. ThisWeek staffers were asked: Would you ever try dragon fruit?

Sarah Sole: Sure.

Scott Hummel: I have. I like it.

Lisa Proctor: I probably would. I’ve had octopus and some different things.

Nate Ellis: If I knew what it was, I’d consider it.

Dennis Laycock: I would, and I have and it’s delicious.

Andrew King: I think I've had it mixed with other things, but I would definitely eat it elsewhere.

Abby Armbruster: If I were overseas where it’s popular, sure.

Lee Cochran: Sure, why not? Can't know if you don't like it if you don’t try it.

Neil Thompson: Yes, but I would want someone to show me how to prepare it, or even eat it.
