    thank you alll for your comments, really appreciate them.
    @ where2 - both dragon fruits have the same sweetness. the red ones are rich in antioxidants and also contain lycopene, which helps reduce risk of prostate cancer. the white /yellow ones contain allicin which helps prevent certain cancers
