The Fruit Chronicles-Pitahaya
Ever see a bunch of weird looking, scary in the unknown fruit or veggies while traveling and want to know what they are? Ever wonder about the flavors? How to eat them? How to know if they are ripe?
Yeah, me too.
Well, you’re in luck! I’ve decided to do all the work for you. I’m starting a new series within the blog, exploring the weird fruits and veggies of South America, showing you how to eat them, describing their taste, and how best to eat them! Buen provecho!
Other names: Pitaya, Dragonfruit, Strawberry Fruit
- (Mine was specifically a yellow pitahaya, they have red as well.)
Location found: Ecuador, but seems to be throughout South America.
Initial thoughts: How the heck do I eat this thing? It sure is hefty.
Taste Review: Delicious. The texture is really nice, not that chewy, the seeds are actually a nice little crunch that adds to it. It’s watery, and sweet. Not a very strong distinctive flavor, but really refreshing.
