Customer Tips & Reviews Dragon Fruit - Yellow
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.
WOLLONGONG WEST, NSW, Australia
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
CARMEL, WA, Australia
love the red one so thought yellow could be a polinater.in a pot up a tree facing north
POTTSVILLE BEACH, NSW, Australia
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.

the most delicious dragonfruit by far; I tasted one and I had to plant the seeds. Will keep you posted!

Planted this year in my warm greenhouse. Am hoping to see fruit within the next year.
Bellmere, QLD, Australia
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...

Superb flavour, refreshing, far better than dragonfruit. Has grown 1m this rainy spring and summer. 3 plants against fence, 4 more to go in during spring 2012.

tasty health food
Biloela, Qld, Australia
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.
Hastings, VIC, Australia
The yellow pitaya seems more sensitve to cold than the red which is still OK though died back a little in Winter
Eagleby, QLD, Australia
In a pot growing well, no pests. Still figuring out what to use for it to grow up and across so that it fruits LOL
Concord, NSW, Australia
The yellow dragon fruit climbing up my work shop verandah is the one on the left which came from Daleys Fruit Tree Nursery the one that came from you people by Mail Order. The one on the right came from you Daleys but via a local nursery.
Kingscote, SA, Australia
After 1 year has trebled in size, looks fine, in half sun, very dry spot, but too small to flower yet.
Upper Ferntree Gully, VIC, Australia
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...
