Tyalgum Dragon Fruit

The Tyalgum Purple is remarkable in that it produces the extravagant blooms associated with fancy Epiphyllums, whilst also bearing large fruits of a quality considered superior to Dragonfruit. Flowers are as broad as tea saucers, delicate yellow washing to ivory, and hold for several days throughout a cycle of up to four weeks. Fruits are as large as cricket balls and covered with a smooth maroon skin which peels easily to reveal firm, fluorescent violet flesh. Tyalgum purple is thornless, naturally dwarfing and an excellent choice as a fruiting container specimen--perfectly placed in hanging pots within those shady areas beneath your verandah. Truly exceptional.
