Red Dragonfruit (Hylocereus Costaricensis)

All our Dragonfruit plants and cuttings are from matured and fruiting mother plants aged between 4 to 7 years. They are healthy, strong and well established.

Our rooted plant in a pot is also very well established. Red Dragonfruit, also known as pitaya, is a tropical fruit in the cactus family. Red Dragonfruit have a brilliant crimson flesh with small edible seeds. The red variety have a very sweet, juicy interior with a kiwi-like texture that melts in the mouth.

The flowers of the Dragonfruit are some of the most unique and strange looking flowers in the world, not to mention some of the biggest! They can reach a diameter of up to 25cm and are about 30cm in length. The flowers themselves only open up for one night and give off a beautiful exotic and fruity scent.

Small - 15cm -30cm
Medium - 30cm-50cm
Large - 50+cm 
Extra Large - 1m +
