Dragon fruit grows on the Hylocereus cactus, whose flowers only open at night. The plant is native to southern Mexico and Central America. Today, it is grown all over the world. It is also known as pitaya or pitahaya. In Malaysia, the most widely available variety is the red dragon fruit (Hylocereus polyrhizus) which has red purplish color pulp with black edible seeds. It is slightly sweet and able to stain our hands in red due to the presence of natural colorant & betacyanins. The attractive color of the fruit make it an excellent ingredient to turn into ice-cream, juice, cocktails, jellies and smoothies.
Apart from that, it is a rich source of nutrition such as vitamin C, calcium, phosphorus and possesses a great antioxidant activity. Also it is known to have beneficial effects in carbohydrate metabolism, strengthening of teeth and bones, strengthening the immune system and is also used in the treatment of diabetes, heart diseases, promoting the growth of healthy gut bacteria, and maintaining healthy body weight.
