Dragon fruit—also called pitaya, pitahaya, or strawberry pear—is a member of the Cactaceae family (cactus species). The bright pink, bulb-shaped fruit is known for its sweet, fresh taste and unique, ornamental appearance (its spiky scales give it its name). The meat of the dragon fruit ranges from white to deep purple.
It is grown primarily in tropical and subtropical areas of the world. While the fruit is popular throughout Asia and Central America, it is less commonly consumed in the United States. But dragon fruit can be a healthy and delicious addition to your diet, as it contains vitamins, fiber, and even iron and healthy fats (unusual for a fruit)
Dragon fruit is a naturally low-calorie food, with most of the calories coming from carbs. There are two types of carbohydrate in dragon fruit: naturally occurring sugars (13g per 6-ounce serving) and fiber. You'll get 5 grams of fiber—or about 20% of your recommended daily intake—in a 6-ounce serving.
