The red and purple colors of Hylocereus fruits are due to betacyanins, a family of pigments that includes betanins, the same substance that gives Beet Root, Prickly Pear, Swiss chard, and amaranth, their red color. Hylocereus undatus (Pitaya blanca or white-fleshed pitahaya) has pink-skinned fruit with white flesh. This is the most commonly seen "dragon fruit". The fruit's texture is sometimes likened to that of the kiwifruit because of its black, crunchy seeds. The flesh is bland, mildly sweet, and low in calories. The seeds have a nutty taste. The seeds are rich in lipids. Dragon fruit is also used to flavor (and color) juices and alcoholic beverages, such as "Dragon's Blood Punch" and the "Dragon”. The flowers can be eaten or steeped as tea.

We use Dragon Fruit from the Hylocereus undatus Family The red and purple colors of Hylocereus fruits are due to betacyanins, a family of pigments that includes betanins, the same substance that gives Beet Root, Prickly Pear, Swiss Chard, and amaranth, their red color.
