Given unusual conditions we have had them fruit in the pots in the nursery. However more then likely they will need to be established and climb up on something.

The Pitaya need direct sunlight in order to fruit. It rarely fruit under shade. Suitable material for it to creep over will be 4"x4" concrete post or wooden post with a motorcycle tyre placed horizontally on top for it to branch.

Personally, I find the red fruit the most sensuous flavour and aroma. It is very high in anti-oxidents and beautiful with mango and red papaya and a squeeze of lime. Beautiful in gelati or just mixed with yoghurt and eaten raw or frozen like a Wiess bar

Dragon Fruit - Pitaya

The height of the plant does not have limit since it grow in segment of about ~3ft each. Will grow on most clingable surface and can grow off of other tree (will kill the other tree as it's a leeching plant). Prefer moist/humid climate

Dragon Fruit - Pitaya

The flower doesn't produce aroma as it cousin. Root will grow out of segmented pieces (plantable). Too much ferterlizer will cause the fruit to grow too fast which eliminate the true taste (sweet and cool).

Must hand pollinate with a brush. Insects too unreliable away from native areas. Does better with sharp drainage but tolerant of wetter soils. Plant against walls / fences so adventitious roots can stick to surface and support. Dilute fertilse frerquently
