Singapore's only Dragon Fruit Farm. Located within Kranji Countryside, next to Hays Dairies, it is the latest addition to the local farm attractions. The farm grows the red flesh dragon fruit not commonly found in Singapore. It tastes sweeter but is costlier. Besides the dragon fruit trees, the farm also plants several rare species of fruit trees and vegetables.

    I've seen a dragon fruit tree in Taiwan and was surprised to see a Dragon Fruit Farm in Singapore!

    The Dragon fruit plant is a member of the cactus family. It is easy to grow, requires lots of sunlight and can also withstand long period without rain. Its huge, fragrant flowers bloom every 15 days and only a few hours in the night.

    This Dragon Fruit farm grows a Taiwan species of Dragon Fruit which has red flesh. The Dragon Fruit sold in Singapore is usually the white flesh ones which come from Vietnam. One seldom finds this red flesh Dragon Fruit in Singapore. They are supposed to taste sweeter. The red flesh variety contains lycopene which is a natural antioxidant known to fight cancer, heart disease and lower blood pressure.

    Besides the dragon fruit trees, there are a few rare plants like the Australian Passion Fruit, Thailand Passion Fruit, Red Long Beans (after frying, turn green colour wor!!)..... etc.

    You are not allowed to pluck the fruits in this orchard but you can buy them. The day I went, dragon fruits were sold at S$4 a kilo. Expensive hor. The elderly lady seller said it was the cheapest price they had ever set because they had a big harvest then. After haggling, she agreed to sell 3kg for S$10. The fruits had been plucked for a few days and didn't look pretty. hehehe.....

    The fruits were very ripe and when I cut them, there was lots of juice.... but not sweet leh. :( Since there were so many, I made Dragon Fruit jam and I'll try to bake a Dragon Fruit cake with it.

    Warning : After eating the red dragon fruit, the next day when you go toilet ah, don't panic when you see the toilet bowl all red or the toilet paper stained red.... that's only the colouring from the red dragon fruit!! I almost died of shock the first time I saw 'red' in the toilet bowl!! hahaha.....
