Dragonfruit Identification

    5 responses

Linda starts with ...
Hi all,

I'm wondering whether it is possible to identify which variety of dragon fruit from the flower (or from the stems)?. Just basic i.d. as in red with white center, red and red or yellow fruit.
The reason I asked is that on Gumtree I've seen a "e;come and get some cuttings from a plant that I'm not sure what it is but someone said it may be a dragon fruit"e;
Thanks in advance.
Linda

Hi Linda,

It's impossible to tell which CVs i.e Red or Pearl etc from the flower. All you need to wait until the fruits are ready to eat. DF needs strong frames/posts to support. If you let it grows on the ground the branches and fruits will rot when ground is wet or damp. Cheers

Usually when the cactus climbs up the frame and falls Back down it will start to fruit. Doesn't usually fruit when it is climbing upwards. See David01's photo.

Definitely a Dragonfruit. If you have access to pollen from a different dragonfruit plant,have a go at pollinating it when it flowers next.
One way I’ve found to check on flesh colour is to look at the newest plant growth and check the colour. White fleshed plants generally have green coloured growth, and red fleshed varieties generally have a reddish hue to new growth. Can’t say it works every time, but it’s a good start.
