Dragon Fruit - Yellow

I am growing this in Melbourne, its not as cold hardy as the pearl pitaya, I grow this against a warm wall at the front of the house that gets the morning sun, its also protected by my Ruby Guava. I feed with seaweed to keep it strong.

I'd really like to give one of these a go, I've heard that the yellow have the best flavour. I've tried the pink skinned / white flesh variety in the past. They are quenching, but not very flavourful. I expect the yellow to have a bit more to it

Very nice dragon fruit , refreshing white flesh with a hint of citrus . Nicer than other white flesh red pitaya. Small fruit spiny till ripe , then brush off spikes .less productive than red.

Our yellow dragon fruit vines are flourishing! I think the fruit tastes like a mild melon with a flesh texture similar to a kiwi fruit (only white). Everyone I know who tastes this fruit for the first time loves it. I personally do not think drago...

Ease of growth. Local wildlife haven't figured out it is delicious. Expensive to buy locally in the shops. Convenient to pick when ready, rather than drive into town to be told they haven't got any in stock.

A very recent acquisition, in late summer 2008/2009, it quickly had to adjust to being protected from the cold of winter. Currently, it is sheltered in a basket on a wall by the back door, where it receives filtered light in the morning and late aftern...
