With such a name, our attention is instantly attracted. So what is this fruit, completely unknown in Europe? Also called “Pitahaya”, it is the fruit of a cactus that grows everywhere in the tropical areas of our planet. Its name probably comes from its skin looking like leather with prominent scaly tips. Anyway, it is delicious in many ways, either as a fruit or as a juice. Ours in Dajuma grow in the garden with this unique Indian pink color inside as shown on the photo.
