White flesh vs red flesh
There are a lot of differences between red and white dragon fruit. For the regular fruit eater the difference can be found in the taste of the pitaya, which is a lot more sweeter. White pitayas are generally larger than yellow or red pitayas and have longer cuttings.

Delicious tasting experience
The unique looking outside of the flesh of a pitaya promises a sweet and delicious tasting experience. The white flesh inside the pitaya has a lower amount of sugar than other coloured dragon fruit which causes the flesh to be less sweeter compared to the red flesh dragon fruits.
