#whatis The pitaya is known as DRAGON FRUIT, it is the fruit given by some species of cactus.
It is native to Mexico, but is also successfully grown in some Southeast Asian countries.
In Spain it has been experiencing its cultivation for some years in Malaga and the Canary Islands. Of white meat and sweet taste, it contains little sugar.
Although it is coated with a shell of skewers, it is a delicate fruit and unsuitable for transport, especially the variety of pink bark, as there is another yellow color that is more resistant.
As a curiosity, the pitaya plant is pollinated by bats, as its flowers open only during the night. What an exotic thing!
