IN THE PINK: Dragon fruit is the latest super food.
DRAGON FRUIT, also know at pitaya, is being hailed as yet another new ‘super fruit.’
So if you’re bored of blueberries and have gorged on goji berries then why not try dragon fruit.
It is not the easiest thing to eat, being covered in spikes from the cactus it is harvested from. But, its health benefits are worth the effort. It is said to be rich in vitamin C, fibre and calcium and it is claimed it can regulate blood sugar levels in diabetics as well as providing a dose of anti-oxidants.
The bright pink fruit tastes similar to a kiwi fruit and pear and is full of edible black seeds.
