The Pitaya or commonly called Dragon Fruit, originates from Central America, but is also popularly grown and sold in South East Asia.
This stunning fruit, not only looks goods, but is packed with essential goodness. Rich in vitamin C (10x daily dose): boosts your immune system. High in fibre: improves your digestion. Full of anti-oxidates: detoxifies your body. Reduces blood sugar levels and controls your cholesterol. Not bad for such a pretty pink fruit! Great in smoothies or a topping on your favourite cereal.
