Living healthy with Dragon fruit

It is the fruit of several cactus species, specifically genus Hylocereus (sweet pitayas). These species are native to Central and South America, and are also cultivated in Asia.
There are three varieties of Dragon Fruit or Pitayas. The first is the variety with dark pink skin and white flesh, sometimes called the Vietnamese dragon fruit. It is the most common variety in Asia, specifically Philippines. The second variety is the one with dark pink skin and red flesh; they call it the Malaysian dragon fruit.
