i have recently purchased 2 dragon fruit plants, they have recently started to produce yellow blisters on their body, i suspect it could be due to frosts, but was wondering if it could be another type of condition.

Aaron, I have had the same problem just in the last week, but mine seem to have yellow/orange spots inside the blisters.
We haven't had frosts in the area of the plants. I read on a website that it could be sunburn so have moved mine to a more shady position and am hoping for the best.

Hi guys,

I have about 7 Dragon fruits growing now. They are an under story tree, so they prefer filtered light. There favorite thing to do is to climb up a large tree. They have a very shallow root system, and grow air-roots as they get bigger. They do not need much fertilizer or water, too much of either of these can cause problems. I am training mine over a trellis, and they are approx 3m high now. They take 2-3 years to fruit, so I still have a couple of years to go.

I purchased 2 fruit 18mths ago & am now getting my 3rd crop of fruit.
Train your plants up a trellis like a cross shape tie them into a clump.
Once the limbs begin to hang over they will fruit.
I feed them with a light citrus fertilizer.
You should get 4 crops a year.
I live on the Qld Sunshine Coast & we havn't had frost, but I have had the same blister on the new plants when they are getting too much sun.
They certainly are a great eating fruit.
