no fruit on vietnamese white

    8 responses

CCR starts with ...
Hi, I have never had fruit on my Vietnamese white dragonfruit, Hylocereus undatus. I thought it was lack of pollination but have been told they self pollinate. I have tried hand pollination in the past, tons of pollen still no fruit. I live in Cairns, it's a huge plant with many flowers. I don't fertilise it, thought it looked healthy. Any ideas out there of what to do please?

Hi CCR,
I could be completely wrong, but I believe there is a "male" and "female" Dragon fruit plant.
Back 10 or so years back, my mum had such a plant that would have heaps flower over 4-6 yrs but it never set into fruit. She got rid of it and planted another Dragon plant in the same location and it produced fruit after the second summer and continue to produce fruit ever since.

Take a close look at the flower and see if it has the central stigma as in my photo. Note the stamen are surrounding it and are closer to the white petals. So if your flowers have the stigma, they should produce fruit.

I have read that some varieties of dragon fruit plants do require cross-pollination. The Vietnamese one - Pearl Dragon Fruit - should not need it, so maybe you have a different variety in your garden?

Hi CCR,
Send me few photos of your dragon plant to see why your plant does not bear fruit but flowers. Cheers

This is where it is rooted. It grows up a dracena. It has more buds on it currently.

Ok. Dragon fruit needs a lot of sun light (full sun) + water and fertilizer (NPK:10:5:10) to bear fruits. Usually fruits on 2nd and 3rd year branches.

1. Your plant grow under the shade of other trees. Dragon fruit needs full sun not partial sun or shade,

2. Look like their roots share the same soil with other tree roots. Not enough water and nutrient to bear fruits.

3. You need to built a separate trellis to grow on its own and under full sun if you want a lot of fruits. My dragon fruit (2 plants) around 25 years old and have around 200kg of fruits per year. Cheers
