Exit the Dragon... Fruit? 🐲

Yes, they are admitting it’s political…

“The name dragon fruit is not proper, and due to its name one thinks of China. So we have given it the name ‘Kamalam’,” he said.

…and simultaneously denying it.

There is nothing political behind renaming of the fruit, Rupani said.
