Dragon fruit, also called pitaya or pitahaya, is a tropical fruit coming from the dragon fruit tree, which is actually a type of large cactus. There are three varieties of dragon fruit:
Pink skin with white flesh (white dragon fruit)
Pink skin with red flesh (red dragon fruit)
Yellow skin with white flesh (yellow dragon fruit)

All of these varieties have tiny black seeds interspersed throughout the flesh and a very similar taste.
