Pitaya Fruit growing on the plant, also known as Dragon Fruit and Hitachaya
This dragon fruit keeps outdoing itself! It is called pitaya in Spanish. The local variety grows wild on trees and the flesh of the fruit is white. It is as tasty as the bright coloured one.
Dragon fruit is high in vitamin C and other antioxidants, which are good for your immune system. It can boost your iron levels. Iron is important for moving oxygen through your body and giving you energy, and dragon fruit has iron. And the vitamin C in dragon fruit helps your body take in and use the iron.
