About this deal

Plant them together with bougainvillea vines (as Thai gardeners do) and it's a much more interesting, worthwhile display. However, with proper care and attention, you can successfully grow Dragon Fruit plants in various climates, even in regions with lower humidity levels. Gardeners in tropical or subtropical locations can even let this plant do what it does naturally – let it climb up a tree. If you've planted your dragon fruit plant from seeds and they're now visibly growing, separate them into their own pots.

If your plant is going to be outside (whether it's in a container or not), choose a place that's at least partly sunny.After reading How to Grow a Unicorn my grandchildren could not wait until the second book was published. With multiple projects under wraps, she is working with leading picture book talents, including Steven Lenton and Ella Okstad, to bring her hilarious ideas to life.

While rabbits and deer can also be problematic, birds pose the greatest risk for many pitahaya gardeners, since they will enjoy pecking into dragon fruits as they ripen. After the third set of leaves has appeared, gently remove individual plants from the pot and plant each in its own larger container. To my complete surprise, 2 of 4 cuttings sprouted new branches and roots, so I can plant now with long-term growth in mind. If you are growing them for fruit and not just as a whimsical act of pure fun, then you’re going to need a very sturdy trellis system since they produce masses of heavy foliage and heavy dragon fruit.

If you live in a warm area with a long, warm growing season, this plant could sustain being outside. But that’s not all ‘Sin Espinas’ has going for it – this Nicaraguan variety is self-fertile, has gorgeous pink skin, and was one of the top-rated selections for flavor in a blind taste test conducted by the University of California at San Diego Cooperative Extension. Fruits of ‘Colombiana’ are small to medium-sized, weighing in at eight to 12 ounces, and they are extremely sweet, with a Brix score of about 21.

Another legend says that the two trees were planted by a woman in love with twin brothers to get their attention!
