Dark Star

Dark Star is a medium to large sized fruit pink fleshed variety that weighs on average 3/4 to 1 pound. The fruit have a mild grape-like flavor that is most enjoyed when chilled and eaten fresh. This variety is self-pollinating, and it will set fruit on its own. It tropical regions in can handle full sun. Strong grower! An easy to grow dragon fruit that grows well with almost no spotting and is a reliable bloomer/fruit producer, usually blooms mid to late summer-likes the heat, fruit is ripe by fall.

Dragon fruit can be grow in containers or in the ground as long as they are planted in well-drained soil, full sun and trained to a trellis to support weight of this fast-growing cactus. Protect from hard freezes.

Dragon Fruit Plant Care: All of 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 full shade to full sun over a period of at least three weeks. Dragon fruit is 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. Dragon fruit plants can be grown in large containers or the ground. 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.

    The plants purchased are in good health with a good root system, taking into considering their size. They are on the small side, but with care, you will have large mature plants. I have purchased several Dragon Fruit plants from Cal Poly and all were in good shape.
