Yellow Dragonfruit, also known as Pitaya, is a tropical fruit in the cactus family. Yellow dragon fruit is extremely rare and you won’t find many of them available in any nursery or major plant store. Only a handful of private growers in NZ propagate this variety and we want you to enjoy them in your garden too.
The yellow Dragonfruit is also the sweetest of all dragons. The inside is almost translucent and the seeds are larger than in other varieties. This yellow dragon fruit is commonly grown in Ecuador. The bracts on this vibrant yellow variety are smaller and less leafy than on its red-skinned counterparts. We call this the “gateway” dragon fruit, since it is the sweetest and most flavourful. One bite and you’ll be hooked! Yellow dragon fruit is usually available in bursts throughout most of the year
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.
