Dragon Fruit (Hylocereus undatus) Seeds

$1.25

Perennial epiphytic or creeping cactus native to Central America and hardy to 30 degrees F. Night-blooming and exotically scented, the flowers of Dragon Fruit can reach more than a foot long and wide. The fruits are red and free of spines, with a succulent white flesh dotted with the jet black seeds, the flesh being very sweet, edible and delicious, reaching up to 5 inches long. Cacti may be planted in the ground and trained up a pole and then allowed to droop into a weeping willow shape. The cacti have a jointed growing habit (see photo) which some describe as “vining,” and which is best grown on a trellis, wall or tree once the plants attain sufficient size.

PLANT INFORMATION
Perennial epiphytic or creeping cactus native to Central America and hardy to 30 degrees F. Night-blooming and exotically scented, the flowers of Dragon Fruit can reach more than a foot long and wide. The fruits are red and free of spines, with a succulent white flesh dotted with the jet black seeds, the flesh being very sweet, edible and delicious, reaching up to 5 inches long. Cacti may be planted in the ground and trained up a pole and then allowed to droop into a weeping willow shape. The cacti have a jointed growing habit (see photo) which some describe as “vining,” and which is best grown on a trellis, wall or tree once the plants attain sufficient size. To get started, press seeds into surface of composty cactus mix and keep moist, warm and in the light. Light-dependency is particularly strong in this species–processing moist seeds in a light place will cause them to germinate, so we process and dry in the dark. Will leave it to you to put them in the light! Germination is in 2 to 4 weeks at 70 degrees F (21 degrees C). Protect from frost.
