The pitahaya is also known as the dragon fruit. It belongs to the cactus family. The fruit has an oval shape with protruding formations. The skin is thick, soft and of color that goes from green to yellow while it matures. The pulp is grayish-white with innumerable small edible seeds, black in color. The taste is very sweet, sweeter than the red pitaya.

The pitaya can be consumed fresh, dividing it into two halves and removing the pulp with a spoon. It can also be cut into slices. The skin is not edible. It is known that pitaya helps to facilitate digestion. If this effect is not desired, it is recommended not to chew the small black seeds inside.
