Dragon Fruit, also known as pitahaya or strawberry pear, is a tropical fruit with a vibrant red skin. A member of the cactus family, it is commonly found growing in tropical and subtropical regions of South America and Asia.
While it is still considered a fairly ‘new’ fruit here in the West, according to Aztec literature, it actually dates all the way back to the 13th century! In traditional and alternative medicine, Dragon Fruit is used to treat hypertension. The seeds of the fruit are also believed to help regular blood glucose levels and are often used as a treatment for type 2 diabetes.
