Vietnam’s dragon fruit (also known as pitaya) is a popular fruit commonly grown throughout tropical countries and subtropical world regions, notably Southeast Asia. The fruit is recognized by its distinctive oval shape, green fins, and vibrant red or pink skin when ripe. Its white, red, or purple-pink flesh is easily accessible, enveloping numerous small black seeds. With a sweet and slightly tangy flavor and over 80% water content when ripe, this fruit has found its home mainly in the southern regions of Vietnam since its introduction in the mid-20th century. Over the years, it has evolved into an export-worthy commodity, adored for its flavor and eye-catching appearance.

How to eat

During the summer, dragon fruit lends itself to a variety of culinary creations, including smoothies, refreshing jellies, and vibrant salads. It's not only perfect for enjoying fresh, but it also serves as a healthy snack option due to its high fiber content and absence of fat. This particular dragon fruit is highly favored in Asian cuisine, where it features prominently in summer refreshments, palate-cleansing dishes, and as a satisfying snack. We particularly appreciate how this fruit provides its own natural bowl—simply scoop out the succulent flesh, dice it, and combine it with berries and melon to craft a visually stunning and delicious fruit salad.

Health benefit

Aside from its delicious flavor, attractive appearance, and reasonable price, dragon fruit is also valued by international consumers for its health benefits. Dragon fruit contains a lot of valuable nutrients for the body, being rich in antioxidants, such as flavonoids, betacyanins, and phenolic acids. These natural compounds help protect the body's cells from damage by free radicals – molecules that can lead to premature aging and diseases like cancer.

 * Dragonfruit varieties:
 + White flesh dragonfruit: The most ubiquitous dragon fruit variety, it features bright red thin skin, white flesh, and black seeds. Its shape is reminiscent of an eclipse rather than a perfect circle. Known for its crunchiness and earthy flavor, along with its high acidity, this variety ranks as the least sweet among all dragon fruit types. Available year-round, it enjoys global popularity and is the most extensively cultivated variety.
 + Red flesh dragonfruit: Within the array of dragonfruit varieties, the red-fleshed one is easily distinguishable by its vibrant magenta color, both inside and out. The variety is slightly smaller, but it carries more weight due to its high water content, resulting in notably softer flesh, which distinguishes it from its white-fleshed counterpart. Its flavor leans towards sweetness, with subtle berry undertones. Unlike the white-flesh variety, the leaves, known as "bracts," exhibit a curvier appearance, adding to the fruit’s distinct charm.
 + Purple - Pink dragonfruit: 
A combination of the red-fleshed dragonfruit with the white-fleshed variety, the purple-pink dragonfruit exhibits strong resistance to diseases and insects, making it an excellent choice for GlobalGAP-compliant cultivation and international export. Purple-Pink Flesh Dragonfruit is defined by its egg-shaped form, boasting a glossy pinkish-purple skin, and offering a solid, less watery flesh with a high flesh-to-fruit ratio. Its taste is a delightful blend of sweetness and mild tartness, intensifying as it ripens. Additionally, its flesh texture is firmer than its white flesh counterpart.
