A Dragon Fruit is a rare Fruit that has a 5% chance to be grown from Farm plots by planting Seeds (or 4.75% ROG or 3.7% Shipwrecked). Dragon Fruits can also be produced by feeding a cagedBird a Dragon Fruit to receive 1-2 Dragon Fruit Seeds as well as a 50% chance to get a generic seed. Dragon Fruits are the main ingredient in making a Dragonpie.
Since Dragon Fruits are rare, and only restore as much hunger as Berries by themselves, albeit with more health gain, it is better to cook this into Dragonpie, as it will restore a lot more hunger and health than even a cooked Dragon Fruit. Since Dragonpie can easily be made with just Twigs as filler, it is highly resourceful.
Prepared Dragon Fruit is made by Cooking Dragon Fruit on a Campfire, Fire Pit or Star. It restores significantly more Health and slightly more Hunger than its raw counterpart. It can also be used as an ingredient in several Crock Pot recipes.
