Dragon fruit, also known as Pitaya, Pitahaya and Strawberry pear is a type of cactus, which is grown in Southeast Asia, Mexico and parts of Central and South America. For me personally this is the most stunning fruit I’ve ever seen! There are three types of Dragon fruit… One is with yellow skin with green scales & white fruit flesh with black seeds. The other two are with bright pink skin with either white and gorgeous pink-purple flesh with black seeds (LOVE it!).
