Yellow Dragon Fruit

Yellow Dragon Fruit

(Hylocereus megalanthus), Yellow Dragon Fruit is known by many names, such as pitaya and pitahaya depending on genus, strawberry pear, or night blooming cereus. It is also called thang loy in Thailand, pitahayah if hailing from Israel, and paniniokapunahou in Hawaii.

Despite this contemporary global spread, dragon fruit is native to Mexico, Central America, and South America and was introduced to Asia via Vietnam by the French in the early 1800s.

Yellow Dragon Fruit is often consumed fresh, much like a kiwi, and the plant’s small flower is edible when cooked. Rich in protein, fiber, iron, and antioxidants, it is a popular ingredient in fruit bars, jellies, juice, yogurt, and smoothies.
