Dragon fruit (Hylocereus) is also known as a pitaya and is a tropical plant that produces edible fruit. This is a fruit that is often seen in health food stores and it originates from several different places. Dragon fruit is used for food and medicine. Dragon fruit tastes wonderful! It’s sweet and crunchy, with a flavor similar to a kiwi and pear combination. It features a mouth-watering light sweet taste, an intense shape, and color, and the flower is striking and very fragrant. In addition to being tasty and refreshing, this beautiful fruit boasts a lot of water and other vital minerals with varied nutritional ingredients.
There are two different species, Hylocereus Undatus which has white flesh, and Hylocereus Polyrhizus which has red flesh. The flesh of the red dragon fruit is sweeter than white flesh varieties and has a beautiful vibrant red to purple color.
As with other fruits, you can keep these out at room temperature for several days so long as they’re uncut. Once cut, you should eat your dragon fruit immediately or store it in the fridge for a day or so until it begins to brown. If you’d like to slow the ripening of uncut dragon fruit, place it in a plastic bag and store it in the fridge. They’re prone to absorb flavors and odors from other foods, so the baggie will help prevent this.
