HOW TO STORE DRAGON FRUIT:

Once the fruit is rip, it will lay on your counter without refrigeration for a few days.

Refrigeration is fine if you wish it to last longer. Just be sure to put it in a plastic bag first so it doesn’t pick up the flavors of other foods in your fridge.

Cut the fruit only when you are ready to eat it.
