Product Overview

Dark Star is a medium to large sized fruit purple 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 sterile. In tropical regions it 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.

Self-Sterile - It needs cross pollination to set fruit, usually done by hand pollination from another variety.

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.
