Dragon fruit puree is one of the many types of products supplied by iTi Tropicals. Dragon fruit, also known as pitaya or strawberry pear, is a fruit of growing popularity. Known as the most beautiful fruit in the cactus family, the dragon fruit is cultivated in the subtropical and tropical regions of Central Mexico, Central America, South America, and Southeast Asia. Upon reaching maturity, the dragon fruit reaches its optimal sweetness. The fruit has a hot pink or reddish skin with greenish scales, but the edible inner flesh is white, pink, or red with numerous small black seeds. The dragon fruit is known for its natural deep red-crimson color and slightly sweet taste often compared to that of a kiwi or pear.
Dragon fruit is very appealing to consumers due to its exotic nature. Its puree can be used as a topping in a dessert, ice cream or sorbet, as well as in juice, jam, or topping on salads. It tastes great in tropical drinks, smoothies, yogurts, ice creams, sherbet, tarts, jellies, syrups, sauces, and cocktails. Dragon fruit blends well with most fruits including banana, guava, coconut cream, pineapple, papaya, and mango and brings an exotic feel and color to a product without overpowering the palette.
