We bring the exotic taste of dragon fruit to your table
With Pitahaya, the tropical flavour is here to stay. This fruit is now produced at Agroponiente’s farms on the Mediterranean coast, from the last months of summer until December. We collect it at its optimum point of maturity to obtain a fruit full of personality, with all its nutritional properties and health benefits, which our bodies will appreciate.
Dragon fruit is known for its sweet and refreshing taste, as well as its unique aroma. Why is it so tasty? It has a high rate of Brix degrees, or in other words, the sugar levels are high, and it provides a unique sweet taste that satisfies our palate. If you still need convincing, let us ask you: what do you think is the environmental impact of these fruits? It’s low – Pitahayas don’t need much help from humans or too much water to grow.
