Dragon Fruit White - Hylocereus polyrizus
Dragon Fruit halved Our variety of tropical white fleshed dragon fruit is a Vietnamese variety, Jaina. A large fruit with a waxy red outside and a white, mildly sweet flesh inside, spotted with small soft edible seeds. We look forward to these delicious fruits grown in our greenhouse that ripen here July - September. Dragon fruits are also known as pitaya and orchid cactus. Dragon fruit is a vineing succulent with gorgeous, large, night blooming white flowers followed by vivid exotic fruit. Plant does extremely well in pots and is usually trellised. For those who can grow them outside, they are a useful ornamental, as well as nutritious. Jaina is self fertile, meaning it can fruit without a different variety. Space 8'-10' apart on trellis, fence, or wall. Or grow in a pot in the greenhouse or indoors, moving the plant to larger containers as the plant grows. Outside zones are 9-10.
