Dragon Fruit (Hylocereus species)
Dragon Fruit is an amazing orchid cactus, related to the epiphyllum. It blooms at night with fragrant flowers lasting only until morning. Hand pollinate when the flowers are open to produce fruit. The round, red fruit has prominent scales on the outer rind –hence Dragon Fruit. The sweetly-flavored fruit tastes like a cross between a kiwi and a pear. Our red-fleshed variety contains lycopene, a natural antioxidant that’s good for your health. Once the vine matures at 4-5’, it will fruit throughout the summer producing 3-4 crops a year. Our plants may take up to 2 years to reach maturity. Allow soil to dry out between waterings in the winter but keep moist in the summertime.
