Red Dragon fruit, scientifically known as Hylocereus costaricensis is native to Costa Rica and Nicaragua. We source this fruit locally here in south Florida. There are many varieties of red dragon fruit that we have access to, such as: physical graffiti, purple haze, pink panther, and common red to name a few. The flavors of these varieties differ very slightly. The fruit is a bright magenta color and is loaded with edible seeds. It tastes similar to a combination of watermelon and strawberries. 

Red Pitaya is one of the very few fruits that contains a very powerful antioxidant called indicaxanthin. It is a type of plant pigment present in certain fruits and vegetables such as beets. Antioxidants may help protect the body cells from damage caused by free radicals. Red Dragon fruit is available during the seasons of summer and fall. 

 

Fun fact: Red dragon fruit may cause your stool and urine to appear red.

Tropical Fruit ripens best in warm temperatures. If you have received fruit that has not ripened and you wish to speed up the ripening process, we recommend to either put your fruit in paper bags or wrapped in a kitchen towel and placed in a dry, warm area. Alternatively, you may also place your fruit outside in the sun (in an area mindful of bugs) which will also speed up the ripening process.
