Dragon Fruit also known as Pitaya or Pitahaya fruit. This plant is actually a type of cactus, and the fruit comes in 3 colors: 2 have pink skin, but with different colored flesh (one white, the other red), while another type is yellow with white flesh. Dragon fruit is low in calories and offers numerous nutrients, including Vitamin C, phosphorus, calcium, plus fiber and antioxidants. You will know when they are ready to be eating. The tips of the Dragon Fruit will tell you. Once you don’t see the green tips it is ready to eat.
I found nothing wrong with eating a Dragon Fruit. It was not sweet or sour. I actually ate the whole thing. It has a nice calm taste to it and you can eat the seeds. Just a little crunchy but not so crunchy you will feel annoyed. I would love to buy some more of this fruit but it is almost 2 Euro for a fruit big as my hand. Perhaps once every now and then I will splurge on costly fruits.
I have not tried the red dragon fruit. I bought the yellow because the vendor told me it was sweeter than the red. I plan to try the red next time I am in the mood to splurge!
