I worried about my sapote at first and molly coddled it for a while but it is doing quiet well so far, I have it protected with shade cloth in the chook yard, so the chooks are keeping weeds and bugs at bay, the only worry I have is the heat and the wind, (it can get very hot and windy here), it is watered by reticulation daily and mulched well.

Dragon Fruit - Red 10/10

Debra's Edible Fruits
Update: 3851 days 20hrs

Comments: -

absolutely magnificent, the flower was beautiful and, magical to watch opening, it only took a few hours to open and stayed open for about 24 hours, It took about 2 months to fruit and wasnt a disappointment, the fruit was dark dark red an really tasty , sweet but not overly, unfortunately I only had one fruit, but i am hoping for more this year, I planted it wrongly and am growing it over a pine post like my white dragon fruit, but I have recently discovered that i should have grown it like a vine across trellising. I have taken 4 cuttings which are doing well in pots at the moment and am hoping to get more this year.

My yellow dragon fruit is growing very well, and very quickly, i have yet to have flowers or fruit on it but i am hoping this season I will get some, i have it growing up a pine post and over a wooden cross at the top, i fertilize it regularly with seeweed solution, and am going to add some cow manure in the spring.
