Dragon Fruit Farms
Binh Thuan Province is synonymous with dragon fruit. The A1 highway just west of Phan Thiet is lined with dragon fruit vendors and many tour companies make a stop here for visitors to have a look. Initially the fruit was grown for ancestral offerings and décor, but entrepreneurial Vietnamese recognised its economic potential and now farms cover thousands of hectares 30 kms from Phan Thiet. Originally a seasonal fruit, farmers have taken to shining lights on the fruit at night to create year long harvests.
