5 Reasons You Should Start Eating Pitaya Now
Whether it’s red, pink, yellow or white, pitaya (also commonly known as dragon fruit) is as gorgeous as it is good for you.
With a hot pink peel and bright green “scales” on the outside and tiny black edible seeds dotting red or white flesh on the inside, pitaya’s most common forms are exotic-looking while also providing benefits you can incorporate into your every day diet.
