Pitaya - Dragon Fruit

A Pitaya or Pitahaya is the fruit of several cactus species, most importantly of the genus Hylocereus (sweet pitayas).
These fruit are commonly known as dragon fruit.

Hylocereus blooms only at night; the large white fragrant flowers of the typical cactusflower shape are among those called "moonflower" or "Queen of the Night".
Sweet pitayas have a creamy pulp and a delicate aroma.

I found 1 Hylocereus that was blooming at night. It's very pretty..
