SEEDS OF THE WHITE FLESHED, RED DRAGON FRUIT
ALSO KNOWN AS PITAHAYA
Species: H. undatus
PRODUCES AN EDIBLE FRUIT LATE SUMMER IN OUR ZONE 9BPRODUCES BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS THAT THE POLLINATORS LOVE
WITH TIME THE CACTUS CAN REACH 10' TO 15', BUT IT IS USUALLY GROWN AND TRAINED TO BEND OVER AND NOT GROW STRAIGHT UP (WITH SUPPORT)
THIS FRUIT HAS A WHITE FLESH FULL OF TINY BLACK SEEDS. THE FLESH IS SWEET AND CRUNCHY. THE SEEDS ARE EDIBLE AND ADD TEXTURE.
GREAT EATING ALONE OR MIXING WITH OTHER FRUITS
GOOD NUTRITIONAL VALUE
THE CACTUS MAKES A NICE ORNAMENTAL PLANT IN THE LANDSCAPE
Story of this Seed:
THE SEEDS ORIGINALLY CAME FROM A NEIGHBOR. HER FAMILY HAS BEEN GROWING PITAHAYA FOR MANY YEARS. WE STARTED GROWING THEM ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO AND I HOPE TO ADD THIS TO ONE OF MY FAMILIES PASS ME DOWN CACTUS.
GERMINATION SUGGESTIONS: THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO GERMINATE THE SEEDS. I SOAK THE SEEDS IN ROOM TEMPERATURE WATER FOR A WHILE. SCATTER ON PRE-MOISTENED, SOFT, WELL DRAINING MEDIUM. LIGHTLY COVER THE SEEDS WITH MORE MEDIUM AND GENTLY PRESS TO ENSURE GOOD SEED/SOIL CONTACT.
BE PATIENT. WHEN THE SEEDS GERMINATE THEY WILL HAVE TINY LEAFLETS AND THEY DO NOT LOOK LIKE CACTUS AT ALL. SOON A SMALL CACTUS WILL APPEAR.
TRANSPLANT WHEN SEVERAL INCHES TALL OR THE PLANTS HAVE OUTGROWN THEIR CONTAINER. CAREFUL, EVEN THE BABIES HAVE SPINES.
