Pitahaya

Pitahaya, or dragon fruit, are exotic cactus fruits with a unique appearance. The fruit has a leathery pink or yellow skin, with white or red flesh and black seeds. The pitahaya’s flesh is like a refreshing mix of watermelon and kiwi. It is slightly sweet and low in calories.

Our pitahayas are growing more popular every day. Yex provides active promotional support for this wonderful product and we will be happy to help you with promotions and activities!

Our pitahayas go under our brand Discovered.
