Hylocereus

Its name derives from Greek and literally means "woody candle", to indicate the appearance and the columnar habit of its stems, up to 30 centimeters long and often tending to become climbing or creeping. Particularly appreciated for their showy nocturnal flowers (some of its species are called "queen of the night"), but even more for their fruit, called "dragon fruit", whose development in the alimentary field is taking a stronger position: from their peel different jams are often prepared, from its flowers infusions are obtained, while the pulp, extremely rich in vitamin C, is edible both cooked and raw!
