Black & White Wednesday - Week # 66

Lynne of Cafe Lynnylu is hosting this week's BWW,
please do send your entries to lynnylu AT gmail DOT com

My personal entry for this week is an exotic fruit I have never seen before in Italy:
pitaya or dragon fruit as shown in the picture,
very popular all across Asia, Mexico, Central and South America.

pitaya-red dragon fruit

I have found it at a street market in London, North End Rd, W14,
but had no time to buy and taste it :-(

 very high in antioxidants,
full of vitamin C,
 rich source of vitamins B1, B2, and B3,
 very low in calories and high in fiber,
 seeds provide a source of essential fatty acids.

a nice post here about dragon fruit and one of the biggest producers

We have a group on Flickr if you'd like to join and share your pics,
  hashtag #BWFood on Twitter.
Should you like to host please send me an email to casacortella AT tin DOT it
