Vietnam is the main producer of dragon fruits in the world. I always wonder how this crop had become a major contributor to Vietnam's economy besides rice and other goods. The secret is always the weather: hot dry. To my analysis dragon fruits like hot and dry weather meaning that less disease occurrence. Unlike Malaysia, the weather is hot but humid.
There were two varieties of dragon fruits i.e red and white flesh. It could be easily noticed from its 'scales' where short scales are red and long scales are white. The shape between each other also differs.
To me Vietnam is still a young nation. They had a lot opportunities if their people work hard.
