RED PITAHAYA

ABOUT

The pitahaya is also known as the dragon fruit. It’s related to the cactus family. The fruit has an oval shape with some long protrusions. The skin is red, the protrusions are usually green. The flesh is white with innumerable small black edible seeds. The fruit has a refreshing flavour and tastes a little like a kiwi. You can also buy pitahaya with red flesh on the inside.

PREPARATION

A pitahaya is ripe when it feels soft to the touch. Unripe fruits can be ripened at room temperature. Ripe fruits should preferably be stored in the fridge. The pitahaya can be eaten by cutting the fruit through the centre and scooping it out. The pitahaya can also be cut into slices. The skin is not edible.
