Commonly know as Dragon fruit, the Pitaya is a relative of the cactus and native to the Americas. They are now grown further afield and are relatively expensive.
Their common name comes from the external scaly look of the fruit. Cut open they have a firm, slightly sweet white or pink flesh dotted with tiny crunchy black seeds. Often seen in salads they also pair well with strawberries, pears, citrus and kiwi fruit.
