The Australian Government has launched a $3 million fundraising drive for a red and orange fruit delivery service.
Key points:Red Dragon Fruit Delivery will deliver the red dragon’s fruit in a special way for the Red Dragon Festival, with its name and artwork attachedA crowdfunding page has been launched to help get the Red Dragons fruit delivery business off the groundMr Kato said it was a great opportunity for people to be part of a local business and he wanted to thank all of those who made the request.
“It’s a wonderful idea to get the word out and get this on the ground,” he said.
“We’ve had lots of requests from the community to see if there is a place for it and now it’s been on the agenda.”
Mr Katoro said the red fruit was the result of a yearlong project.
“The red dragon has a lot of characteristics that people like in fruit, so it’s quite a common flavour,” he told 7.30.
“I think people will like it because it’s a very tasty fruit.”
Mr Sato said he had been working on this project for the past few years and he had a long list of requests.
“My request is to bring back this tradition to the region and have it in the red,” he added.
“This has been a great tradition for a long time and I’m really proud to have it here.”
The red and white dragon fruit was a popular local delicacy in the 1950s and 1960s.
It is now used for sushi and is considered a traditional fruit in many Asian cultures.
The Red Dragon Fruit Service, which will be operated by the RedDragon Festival, will be the first Red Dragon fruit delivery company in the country.
“Red Dragon Festival will be launching a new Red Dragon food and drink service to provide the Red dragon fruit service to its members,” RedDragon Founder Chris Kato said.
He said the Red dragons fruit would be available to customers throughout the day, but only during the Red-Dragon Festival and not at other times of the year.
“Our focus will be to serve the Red and white dragons during the festival and at other special occasions,” Mr Kato added.
Mr Satell said he hoped to deliver fruit to residents of the area on the weekend.
“If we’re lucky enough to be able to do that, we will try to deliver it on Saturday,” he confirmed.
“To me, it’s just another great opportunity to have the festival in the Redwood Forest and to help the local community out.”
