This variety of pitaya is yellow on the outside. The flavor is mildly sweet. Pitaya, pitahaya, or dragon fruit, grows on a cactus vine.
PLEASE NOTE: this fruit is not the same as yellow dragonfruit. It is more similar in flavor and texture to white dragonfruit.
To prepare a pitaya for consumption, the fruit is cut in half to expose the juicy inside. The fruit's texture is similar to a kiwifruit because of its black, crunchy seeds. The flesh, which is eaten raw, is mildly sweet and low in calories. The seeds are eaten together with the flesh, have a nutty taste and are rich in lipids, but they are indigestible unless chewed.
Pitaya can also be eaten chilled, frozen, juiced, blended, or used to flavor other beverages.
