DRAGON FRUIT YELLOW

DRAGON FRUIT YELLOW

Hylocereus megalanthus
Member $9.95
Non-Member $12.50
This yellow-skinned form of the pearl Dragon Fruit is worth growing for its spectacular night-blooming fragrant bell-shaped flowers alone but to make the prospect more attractive these are followed by unique lemon sorbet flavoured fruit. In their native Central America they are pollinated by a nocturnal moth so hand-pollinating is recommended here. Grown on a sturdy trellis this fruiting cactus will reward for years.
