Why Costco dragon fruit?
Dragon fruit is loaded with good stuff like vitamin C, iron, fiber, and antioxidants, plus the Pitaya brand dragon fruit at Costco is also certified organic. PItaya only grows the purple flesh dragon fruit (sometimes dragon fruit also has white flesh) because the purple flesh is loaded with more of the good vitamins and nutrients. Dragon fruit is mildly sweet, offering a yummy treat without an overpowering flavor.
