About yellow dragon fruit

It wasn't until the early 2000s that yellow dragon fruit became common in the United States. Even now, many Americans consider yellow dragon fruit to be an exotic and unfamiliar food. Yellow dragon fruit grows on the Hylocereus Megalanthus climbing cactus, which is native to northern parts of South America. Colombia is the leader in the production of yellow dragon fruit, but countries across the globe grow climbing cactus and yellow dragon fruit. In the United States, specialty farmers in California and Florida harvest yellow dragon fruit in smaller quantities.

There are two main types of dragon fruit: red and yellow. The major difference between red and yellow dragon fruit is the color of the skin. When you open the fruit, you'll notice that yellow dragon fruit is grayer in color, while red dragon fruit is more white. You can also observe that yellow dragon fruit has fewer seeds, but these seeds are larger than the seeds of red dragon fruit. Unlike other types of fruit, the seeds in yellow dragon fruit are edible. They add a crunch to the otherwise soft and watery fruit, and they contain healthy nutrients.

Yellow dragon fruit is considered the sweetest of the dragon fruit varieties. The texture of yellow dragon fruit is similar to watermelon but has a softer crunch. As far as flavor is concerned, the yellow dragon fruit is sweet and sugary, but also refreshing and juicy. There are even hints of floral juice, giving an overall mild and tropical taste.
