Product Overview

This Honduran variety produces sweet 3/4 pound crimson red fruit encased in a red skin with green fins. One of the earliest to flower, it also can self pollinate, making it a good choice for the beginning grower. In comparison to other varieties, it is a rather slow grower, but fairly productive. 

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 most of them, and most have grown to a height of two to three feet. The Zamorano variety is typical, having grown from 5" to 36", and I have taken four cuttings from it that rooted easily and now range from about 3" to 12" in height.

    I'm not familiar with this variety and did not know much information about it but I purchased it anyway just to give it a try. The plant looks great too like the other ones.
