Blog Contest Thursday: What is this?

From one of the Tet Flower Markets, Ho Chi Minh City. I need one more day to compile dress contest results, so check in again tomorrow (if interested).

I can't wait until tomorrow or rather, later in the day for us in the Pacific Northwest!

i think they look like pink flails.

Ooo! I know this one! Those are Dragon Fruit (Hylocereus undatus) also called Pitaya. They are actually a type of cactus, and the fruit is edible. The flesh of the fruit is either red or white, and I'm guessing Vietnam probably has the white kind (but I suppose it could be either).

Do I win something?

Nolan, what are pink flails?

Brian, do you enjoy ruining the fun for everyone else? How did you know this? It must stem from your love of pomegranates. Yes, it's a dragonfruit tree and the flesh is white with black seeds- I have never had the red-fleshed ones.

You win a dragonfruit! (Which some may consider a better prize than a bull penis.)

Oh, and you have to come to HCMC to collect your prize.

I was right??! Dude! That was a total guess!

DANG! I never saw this post! I would have guessed pink bull testicles...
