The Pitaya is an interesting fruit that grows on cacti, and is native to Mexico, Central America, and South America (although now cultivated around the world).  It is more commonly known by the names Dragon Fruit, Fire Dragon Fruit, Dragon Pearl Fruit, Green Dragon, Strawberry Pear, or Nanettikafruit.

More Vitamin C is found in red-skinned Pitayas than in other varieties.  Red Pitayas are more rich in Phosphorus, while yellow ones in Calcium.  They contain very little fat, and significant quantities of antioxidants.  All around, they're remarkable healthy.  So the next time you see Dragon Fruit at the grocery store, make sure to pick some up.

In the meantime however, here's a young girl from Japan shoving one into her mouth in less than thirty seconds:
