Medium to large sized fruit with red flesh and a mild, sweet grape-like flavor that is most enjoyed when chilled and eaten fresh. This variety is self pollinating. It has long skinny bracts or fins that make it especially attractive. White elaborate flowers bloom only at night. Grow Dragon Fruit in well-drained soils, in full sun to partial shade. Water this cactus regularly and do not allow the soil to dry out between watering.
