DRAGON FRUIT 'MAGENTA'

DRAGON FRUIT 'MAGENTA'

Hylocereus lemairei
Member $12.95
Non-Member $16.95
A new and rare form of this exotic fruit that is storming the fruit markets of the world. A climbing epiphytic cactus ideal for hot climates. The beautiful and bizarre fruit is shaped like a fiery dragon's breath with exquisite curls of brilliant coloured skin that covers bright magenta-coloured flesh. This fruit looks like confectionery from the lolly shop and the taste is no disappointment. Fruit appears after pollination of the nocturnal flowers in early summer. Try growing against a north facing wall for radiant heat, especially in cooler climates. Water regularly during summer, less in winter and the cooler months. Allow fruit to ripen on the plant prior to harvest. Best grown on a rose hoop.
