The fruit's texture is sometimes likened to that of the kiwifruit because of its black, crunchy seeds. The flesh is mildly sweet and low in calories. The seeds have a nutty taste.
Dragon fruit is also used to flavour (and color) juices and alcoholic beverages, such as "Dragon's Blood Punch" and the "Dragotini"s.
In October, we will be travelling to Southeast Asia to meet our suppliers, carry out our Giving Back Project, and, hopefully, discover new fruits which we can sell here in the UK!
As a result, we will not be able to dispatch orders between the
19th October and the 5th November.
While we are away, our online shop will remain open for you to place orders, which will be dispatched when we return. You can still collect frozen and dried goods from our location in Essex, but by prior arrangement only.
If you would like to make a collection please contact:
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
We are the first company ever in the UK to offer a diverse range of exotic fruits for online purchase. We also sell at selected events around the UK.
Our family-run business, founded in 2014, has grown significantly in the past 2 years. Our Online Shop has now fulfilled thousands of orders since its launch in early 2016.
Our desire to sell exotic fruits was borne from our travels to the Far East and, in particular, to Thailand in 2013, when we first encountered an abundance of fruits we had never seen before.
This turned into a fascination, and by May 2014 we had launched My Exotic Fruit.
Beginning as a Mobile Bar, we started to import exotic fruits and recreate the beachside carts of South East Asia at events where we sold fresh cut fruits and unique exotic drinks.
At many events, our customers asked how to buy our exotic fruits whole to enjoy at home.
It quickly became apparent to us that consumers are becoming bored of the small variety of fruits usually available here in the UK and they are excited to try new exotic fruits. It was for this reason that we decided to launch our Online Shop.
Now, in 2018, it is our aim to maintain our status as the UK's leading online retailer of exotic fruits. We will not stand still though, we plan to evolve over the coming years, constantly increasing the range of rare fruits available, continually improving the online buying experience and always working to improve the customer experience.
Our Mobile Bar Service continues to serve Exotic Cocktails at private parties and sell exotic fruits at vegan food festivals.
The Mobile Bar is dedicated to the most exciting and unusual fruits of the world and inspired by the beachside bamboo bars found on many Southeast Asian islands.
Our selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks have been expertly crafted over the past few years, so we now have many different recipes available, all using the rare fruits we hold in stock. Every drink is completely bespoke to us.
If you are hosting an event and would like to offer your guests something different, we know we are the right choice for you.
We have a range of packages available designed to accommodate different budgets.
