Condor Dragon is a vibrant purple, self-pollinating variety. The fruit is alarge sized with bright purple, great tasting flesh. The exterior skin is light green and pink hues with the green turning pinkish red as the bright purple flesh becomes ripe. This hybrid has a very nice exterior appearance with the fruits size averaging 1 to 1.5 pounds.

Purple Fleshed, Self-Fertile 

Plant care: 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.

    Beautiful well rooted dragon fruit

    Posted by Paul Clifford on Jul 25th 2021

    So far I have purchased about a dozen varieties of dragon fruit from Cal Poly Pomona Nursery. They were shipped promptly and very well packaged. On delivery in April they were well rooted small plants a few inches tall. It's now late July, about 3 months since receiving them, and they have grown to a height of two to three feet. Their growth has been vigorous and I have now planted them in large tubs with a trellis. I have been able to take cuttings that I have rooted. I'm eager to leave another review next year when they fruit to give my impressions of the fruit of each variety. I live in Northern California on the east shore of the San Francisco Bay, so I don't know how well some of the varieties will survive the cool winter, but I'm prepared to cover them if needed.

    I ordered four different dragon fruit varieties at the same time. The Condor plant is surviving. When it was delivered, it was one of the two that were loose in the box with soft-ish growing tips. The tips of the plant are brown and drying up. I hope she pulls through, but am not sure what to do. I am taking care of it the same way as the healthy ones. I was a little nervous about the shipping because I live in Northern California and it was the peak of summer heat. Turns out I was justified. The plants shipped out on a Tuesday and were delivered the following Monday, even though they shipped USPS 3-day Select. When I opened the box, the soil from the pots was scattered all over the box and was bone dry. A couple of the plants were loose and out of the pots. There was a small arrow drawn with a Sharpie on the side indicating which direction should be up, but this was completely ignored by the USPS (it was left on my porch on its side). I hope they improve the shipping. For the $26 charged for shipping and handling, these could have easily shipped UPS and been here in 2 days instead of 6. 3.5 stars for the plant; 3 stars for the shipping/handling.

    Condor DF

    Posted by Artemio Rafanan on Jun 25th 2020

    One of my favourite DF variety. This one in showing some growth already after I transplanted in a bigger pot. All of my DF orders came in good shape and look healthy.

    The cutting was very well routed and arrived in extremely healthy condition and it is already growing in my garden after less than a week. I don’t know this variety so I’m excited to see how it turns out

    Healthy, rooted and cheap $5. While people on the internet are charging $20 per cutting WITHOUT root.

    I bought the plant about a couple weeks ago. It is a good size for the price. I like it.
