Pithaya have yellow skin (which looks a little like a soft pineapple with spikes) and white, but always the beginnings of overlaid leaves, and an abundance of small, black, edible seeds. The flavor is mildly sweet, like a blend of kiwi and pear, and it has a crunchy texture
Pithaya is jam-packed with flavonoids and flu-fighting vitamin C, which is great for the immune system. In fact, it contains more vitamin C than a carrot, making the dragon fruit one of the top vitamin C foods around. The seeds of dragon fruits are high in polyunsaturated fats (omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids) that reduce triglycerides and lower the risk of cardiovascular disorders.

Because pithayas blooms from evening to midnight, it’s sometimes called the “moonflower” or “Queen of the night.”

The best time to pick pithaya is when they’re mature, as they are at their height of sweetness. Mature fruits that are not harvested will continue to grow larger but not sweeter.
