Delight is a very sweet and flavorful variety of dragon fruit with a light pink flesh interior. This variety is reliable and produces an abundance of 3/4 to 1 pound fruit. Delight was hybridizer Paul Thompson's favorite variety.

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.

    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 2 plants which arrived on schedule. Perhaps a stronger box would be useful. The package was seriously mashed and both plant containers were broken open and the contents well mixed. Remarkably, both plants were undamaged and appear to be very healthy. Got a good look at the roots since the potting soil was pretty much evenly distributed throughout the package.
