Dragon Fruit (Hylocereus undatus) plant in a 9 inch pot, organic
Family: Cactus (Cactaceae)
Zones 10 to 12, otherwise grown indoors as a potted plant. Excellent in the greenhouse. Protect from frost.
Perennial cactus native to Central America and the Caribbean. Night-blooming and exotically scented, the flowers of Dragon Fruit can reach more than a foot long and wide. The fruits are red and smooth skinned, with a succulent pink flesh dotted with the jet black seeds, the flesh being very sweet, edible and delicious, reaching up to 5 inches long. They are from the warm tropics and appreciate frequent watering. In warm winter areas, these Cacti may be planted in the ground and trained up a pole and then allowed to droop into a weeping willow shape. They will cling to the pole with epiphytic roots. In nature, these commonly grow up into trees, their fruit hanging heavily pendant as if it were the fruit of the tree. Space plants 5 feet apart.
