Dragon Fruit White Flesh

Pitaya or pitahaya is the fruit of several different cactus species indigenous to the Americas. Dragonfruits belong to a specific group know as ‘Sweet Pitaya’ with three main varieties, White Flesh-Pitaya , Red Flesh-Pitaya  and Yellow-Pitaya. White Flesh Pitaya or Dragonfruit has mildly sweet flavours, reminiscent of a cross between a Melon, Kiwi and Pear. The juicy, spongy yet dense pulp offers a subtle sweet flavor with notes of berry, pear, kiwi, and watermelon, sometimes with just a hint of sourness.  

 

Nutritional Value 

Dragon fruit is rich in phytonutrients and antioxidants, including good amounts of carotene and vitamin C, and its nutritional and antibacterial properties have been studied for their ability to improve digestion, strengthen the immune system, and boost energy levels. Dragon fruit has high water content (about 80% water)

Applications  

 Dragon fruit is best used raw and slightly chilled, but can also be cooked, such as grilling with a sprinkle of chili powder to balance its sweet flavor. Slice the fruit lengthwise and scoop out the flesh, or quarter it and peel off the leathery skin entirely, as it can be bitter. Dragon fruit is commonly blended in smoothies, or juiced for beverages and cocktails.
