Dragon Fruit - Pearl
I’m growing a pearl pitaya in Melbourne, have it sitting on a post under dappled light in summer. Gets a little cold burn on new growth in winter. I look after it with seaweed solution and Charlie carp. Great tropical fruit for Melbourne. | Matthew-Wisniewski - Frankston , VIC 21-Oct-2019
