    Covered in spines and hiding a rich, colorful pulp, the pitaya, a type of dragon fruit, can make or break the economy of entire towns in Mexico during the growing season, when a batch of 4,000 pitayas can sell for over $7,400. Getting your hands on some in the US can cost up to $22 for a bucket of five fruits. Pitayas are hard work. They are extremely delicate and go bad quickly. Workers must pick, despine, and transport the pitayas all in a single day to ensure they reach customers without spoiling. So what makes this fruit worth the painstaking task? And why is it so expensive?

Grew up eating these. They’re only available in very specific times and the rain has to be perfect or there is no pitaya season. Reason where we go in Mexico we only eat pitayas every couple of years. We literally walk through the mountains picking them in the hot sun but they are so worth it. A true delicacy. There is nothing like it ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

I am fortunate enough to live in a part of California where fresh pitaya can be found fairly easily while in season. I'm not sure if there are farmers here producing them since the organ pipe cactus can grow here, or if they're being quickly driven up from Mexico, but they are absolutely worth buying and eating. A little expensive, but a delicious treat that's tasty enough for me to want to plant one of the cactuses to grow my own once I buy a house.

It’s really nice to watch a video of Business Insider of something I thought I was very familiar with. I was born and raised in Guadalajara and have had this fruit for my whole life when it’s available between April-June, I used to think they were a little expensive because I didn’t know the effort the local harvesters put into bringing them to our city. I’ll appreciate more their work after this!

I live near a town that dedicates almost exclusively to harvest them. So we see people with the baskets at the town center archways when in season. And sometimes I think $3 for 12 was expensive... I think thanks to this video I'll be more appreciative of the effort put into bringing them to my city.

My local pedestrian Mexican ice cream guy sells pitaya flavored nieve de garrafa (hand churned Mexican gelatto”) and this flavor is soo yummy, and for some reason pairs amazingly with the “leche quemada” (burnt milk) flavor. I love living in east side San Jose, california, I have all the flavors of Mexico available to me in my neck of the woods.

@hibikime7021 Yes!!! Hand Churned Mexican ice cream “nieve de garrafa” is underrated IMHO. It is similar to Italian Gelatto or Sorbet depending on the flavor. And what puts it over the top is the exotic flavors that are available such as burnt milk, cactus pear (tuna), and the pitaya. Just the other day I tried one made of tejocote fruit (nance). Wasn’t too much to my liking, but the chance to try something different made it worth it.

Pitayas can be found in many places in Latinamerica, however the taste is different. Once I was traveling trough San Luis Potosí state (MX) and I found some stalls selling pitayas, then I was excited to try them. Well, they looked the same but the flavor has not comparison to the ones from Jalisco state (and the ones from some part of Zacatecas state that borders with Jalisco). Later, I had the opportunity to talk to a scientist whom knew about the subject and he did mention that Soil was the difference and that soil gives those pitayas its specific flavor.

@G. G.V I have tried Pitayas in Perú (around Cañón de Colca) and they were sour, which I like it as well.  By your comment I get that you have not tried Pitayas from the Jalisco-Zacatecas area (MX) those Pitayas are so delicious and sweet (not overly sweet).

I have a house in the southern part of Zacatecas state in mexico. (~50 miles north of Guadalajara city) They're reasonably cheap for an American but they're quite expensive for a local Mexican. Usually you'll take a basket or a bucket and buy 30-50 or even more at a time. Vendors can sell then between 4-6 pesos each. (19 pesos to a dollar makes them about 40 or 60 cents. Which is quite cheap but the average mexican worker will make about $10-15 dollars for a full 8 hours of work. So the price of pitayas for locals is quite expensive. They really don't fill you up, you'll need to eat about 20 of them to be equivalent to a decent meal. They do go bad reasonably fast and since their prime season is when it's very hot it speeds up the process. Usually we have to make space in the fridge to make them last longer. The texture and smell of a pitaya is very similar to pumpkin guts, that's the closest thing I can say. Usually after eating them your hand will be stained red from eating the red and purple ones. Even after washing your hands its quite difficult to get off.

This is very similar to the horrisia fruit found in the horrisia cactus here in Australia. I live in rural QLD, if you drive along the roads or go to a farm you c an find hundreds of horrisia cacti that grow fluorescent pink skin and inside it looks identical to the pataya, with the same shape and size. It has what I assume is the same texture, very sandy, but is fairly flavourless with a sweet tang.

The time urgency of peak quality kind of makes sense as to why it’s (somewhat) expensive ($5ea. is not too bad as sometimes avocados can go near as high). This is opposed to some of the Japanese products that have been featured here because “it takes a lifetime to master.” With some of the Japanese things on here I call B.S on paying $500 for a tea pot, $100 for a mango, or $1000 for a paring knife because they claim it takes 30 years to master the art.

Mexico has a large Catholic population. The name Trinidad was likely given to this man by his parents in honor of the Holy Trinity, and not the country. The country, may actually also have been named as such due to religious reasons.

Are the seeds as hard as the cactus fruits? The dragon fruit seeds is crunchy and edible. This fruits sounds like strawberries. It gets rapidly ripe after a few days. I know this because my parents were strawberries farmers. The sad part is that some of these fruits is seasonal. I remembered my parents did not make any profits of growing strawberries. By the time they get their final allowance, it was $10k to $12k a year revenue for both of them. Most of the expenses goes towards the labor farmers and the supplies that that need to do every year not to mention the water bills and the electricity bills. We even have some customers bargain with us. Yet, they don't understand the farmers struggles. I believe that the system is not good. Farmers struggled, yet government doesn't help or turn their blind eyes on farmers. This is for many countries. This is what I experienced. I like to thank you and respect all for your hard work. These fruits looks absolutely stunning and tasty I wish everyone watch this video.

The video shows fruit produced by wild plants. Universities and scientific institutions in Mexico have produced dwarf cultivars that are controlled to a height of 2 metres or less. It is a great pity that these excellent varieties are not yet readily available and I have been trying to figure out how to get them. --- I am a plant lover If anyone can advise how to buy those dwarfed varieties, please let me know, I know that they are available at the resource nursery of the University of Chapingo in Mexico.

I missed eating them fresh of the cacti when I was a kid in Mexico. Not sure if I remember correctly but I used to eat the ones from the nopales, the smaller cacti, and when they were fully ripped. I remember grabbing them with just my hands and removing the needles with just my hands since they would fall off very easily. I also remembered the seeds being softer. When I moved back to the USA I remember the seeds being really though and stopped eating them. About 4 or 5 years ago I found out about the dragon fruit and have ben eating them way more especially in the summer.

As one of the few people who grow Pitayas in the US, I can definitely say that it is the fruit of the gods, you'll never find another flavor like it. Some are more tart, some have a floral sweetness to them, some are more intensely fruity, and some can even be as sweet as sugarcane. The different colors have different flavors, and its mind boggling to see the rainbows of different colors once they all ripen. Their best flavor is when theyre fresh off the cactus, and if you dont live in jalisco the only way to get that is to grow them yourself.

It’s expensive because they usually give one big crop a year. We eat them every June in Northwestern Mexico (but it’s from a different cactus than the one in the video.)

it's amazing how even today with the internet and planetwide supply chains that there are still fruits so hard to cultivate and transport such as the pitaya, being that I live on the east coast of the US, i'll probably never try it fresh.

And of course, the whitezicans come make a profit out of it. I sure hope that they are giving these hardworking farmers the money that they deserve because I sure know that they are getting a good buck for distributing the fruit. Y claro, los whitezicans vienen y le sacan beneficio a esto. Espero que les estén dando a estos agricultores el dinero que se merecen porque sé que a ellos les están pagando un buen dinero por distribuir la fruta.

What do you mean dragon fruit?? The one and only real name for that fruit is pitaya. Dragon fruit is a made up name popularized by the Vietnamese when the French colonizers took pitaya there. Also pitahaya and pitaya is exactly the same. We dont make any distinction here in Mexico. Great video
