Hawaii's Volcanoes National Park Trail food

Dragon fruit is also known as Honolulu queen, whose flowers open at night. This plant is native to southern Mexico and central America. It is grown all over the world now. You may see these fruits at a local Hawaiian farmers market. The one pictured was bought at Makuu Farmers Market in Pahoa Hawaii.

I love to bring these fruits on my hikes in Volcanoes National Park when I guide hiking trips with Volcanoes Hiking Guides.

The fruit is like a cross between a kiwi and a pear and the look is so cool. The fruit looks like a dragons egg.
