Dragon Fruit- Connie Mayer (Cutting)

Selenicereus undatus x stenopterus

Synonyms: Hylocereus undatus x stenopterus


  • Climbing perennial cactus
  • Ornamental purple flowers
  • Requires cross-pollination

A succulent perennial cactus that grows as a climbing vine with stunning purple to pink flowers that open at dusk and close by dawn. The fruit is green to yellow skinned, sometimes with a pink flush, with white flesh and a very sweet flavour with a hint of coconut. First bred in Germany and now grown commercially in Queensland. This variety is self-sterile and requires cross pollination with another variety. Also known as 'German dragon fruit'.

Dragon fruit is a tropical plant native to Mexico and Honduras. The cactus-like plants are succulent and are usually grown up a pole or trellis, with multiple, spreading branches at the top. Tropical flowers that resemble waterlilies open at night and are pollinated by bats or moths. The fruit has a hard skin and soft, sweet-falvoured flesh speckled with small edible seeds. Also known as 'Pitaya', ''Pitahya', 'Queen of the Night', 'Night-blooming Cactus', 'Moonlight Cactus' and 'Cinderella Plant'.

Note: bare-rooted cuttings are between 15cm and 25cm in length. Plant with the arrow pointing upwards.
