American Beauty is a fast growing, self-fertile, purple fleshed dragon fruit variety that produces a medium to large sized fruit weighing between .5-1lb. When the is fruit is ripe, it is round and the deep green fins blend into the pink skin giving the fruit a nice green to pink fade.

Fast grower, Purple Fleshed

Self-Fertile- It can use its own pollen to set fruit.


Dragon fruit are a tropical fruiting cactus. Dragon fruit will not grow in cold climates, so make sure that the temperature is above 40 degrees Fahrenheit to prevent cold damage. Protect from hard freezes. Dragon fruit can be grown in containers or in the ground, planted in well-drained soil, full sun and trained to a heavy-duty trellis to support weight of this fast-growing plant. Avoid overplanting into very large containers, instead gradually increase container size in relation to the plant size. We recommend a complete fertilizer during the growing season. Avoid overwatering in the winter to ensure the plant does not rot off.

All our dragon fruit plants have been greenhouse grown. When you receive your plants, please be patient in acclimating them to their new environment. This means slowly transitioning them from shade to full sun over a period of at least three weeks to avoid sun scald. This could take longer in extreme heat.

    Shipper needs to be notified that the package was tossed around resulting in the partial breaking of the upper portion in half !! Had to tape it up length wise with clear tape its still alive. Shipper should be notified of this problem . Thanks!!

    Looks very healthy with lots of roots considering planted in a small pot. Can't wait to transplant in a bigger pot to explode its growing.

    I will be sounding like a broken record, as I have purchased several varieties of Dragon Fruit plants. The American Beauty DF plant was very healthy when I went to pick them up. They were nicely rooted and for the price, that is a bonus and will save some time. In summary, the plants were in good health. If you are wondering if you should buy Dragon Fruit plants from Cal Poly? I would say "YES".
