Dragon Fruit Cactus
In my Vietnamese neighbours garden you can feast. It looks sparse on first observations but a tour of the garden soon reveals a genuine bounty of foods. My neighbour and I can only speak to each other via our body language and gesticulation. I do not speak a word of Vietnamese and she not a word of English. And hence with have in ten years never exchanged names but have only ever pointed at each others edible plants, tasted and gloated at our shared passions.
On my recent visit there I discovered some new plants I have not seen before, some I have been able to identify easily using the internet and others are going to take a little more time.
Dragon Fruit Cactus: which produces those amazing red succulent globular berries with minute black seeds inside white flesh, was easy to identify but the others a little trickier.
