Luck? Birthright? Know someone who can pull strings at the Ministry of Magic? How lucky are you to be bestowed a dragon’s egg without having to swipe it from an over-protective mama dragon?
Dragon fruit—an exotic oblate orb with its lovely dragon scales—grows in tropical regions, such as Mexico, Thailand, Vietnam—even Florida. Known by a variety of names—dragon scale, green dragon, dragon crystal—the blossoms of this vine-like plant bloom at night, which is extra magical.
Now regular muggles can enjoy dragon fruit without having to fend off basilisks, track down horcruxes, or duel with Voldemort. Simply cut open your dragon fruit and behold the mystery within.
