Pitaya or Dragonfruit thrives around good organic soil. It yields large and ornate white flowers that produce a sweet fragrance when in bloom, but the flowers bloom for only one night, pollinated by bats and moths — however, the plant may have up to six fruit-producing cycles annually.
Pitaya is oval and contains a sweet, sometimes sour taste. The inside is typically white or red with little seeds that are similar to kiwifruit.
Pitaya fruits are high in vitamin c which has benefits for the immune system, skin and connective tissue. It is also essential for virtually all metabolic processes in the body. In addition, dragon fruit are a powerhouse of other antioxidants including lycopene that have numerous benefits for the body, including anti-aging, skin support and support against degenerative disease risk.
In addition, pitaya, like kiwifruit, contains soluble fibre which supports digestive health, healthy cholesterol and weight management. In turn, the little black seeds in dragon fruit powder also contain omega 3 and six for skin moisture, heart and joint health.
