Dragon fruit, also known as pitaya or the strawberry pear. The plant the fruit comes from is actually a type of cactus of the genus Hylocereus, which includes only about 20 different species. Originally mainly popular in Southeast Asia and Latin America, dragon fruit is now grown and enjoyed all over the world.
Dried dragon fruit contains even more fiber per serving than its fresh counterpart. It contains both soluble and insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber helps regulate blood sugar and keeps cholesterol levels in check. Insoluble fiber keeps your digestive tract healthy.
