Pitays is more commonly referred to as The Dragon Fruit. Pitaya is the fruit of several cactus species.
This vividly pink, dark red, pink or yellow tropical fruit with yellow- and green-tipped spines is actually a type of cactus, and is native to Mexico, Central America (BELIZE), and South America. The skin of the dragon fruit is a thin rind. The skin is usually covered in scales, and the center of the fruit is made up of a red or white, sweet tasting pulp. People describe the taste as somewhere between between a kiwi, a pear, and a watermelon (YUMMY)!
Also, the Dragon Fruit provides a number of essential nutrients and has potential healthy benefits as well. It is considered a “super fruit”. Check out all the stunning benefits of the Dragon Fruit.
