This rare yellow Dragon fruit variety is available at Sow Exotic for a limited time! Dragon Fruit is a cactus native to parts of South America where it is typically known as Pitahaya. The cactus is an ornamental climbing vine, that features a large and impressive flower. It's flesh is snow white and tastes like a fruity pillowy cloud of deliciousness. 

This plant comes from the family of 'moonlight cacti' indigenous to the Caribbean, Central America, and South America. Many of the cacti in this family have flowers that only bloom at nighttime, activated by the moon's light. 

Dragon Fruit plants are self pollinating and easily grown.  But keep in mind they require certain nutrient requirements to thrive and produce decent fruit. The best soil for these plants is a high moisture soil with lots of humus.
