You are bidding for the Rooted Pitaya Cactus in the pictures above. It was taken from larger cacti that I grew from seeds. I started the cacti back in 2015. The seeds were brought from Mexico. It is a Red-Fleshed pitaya. I can verify the seed are of the red-fleshed Pitaya because I picked them out of the fruit myself. All the pictures except for the first one, belong to me. They show the Cactus you will receive, the mother cacti, and a picture of a pitaya I recently had this early May 2019. It is a very sweet, delicious fruit.
Pitaya is a fruit that grows on the organ pipe cactus in Mexico and in the southwest region of the United States.The bright red fruit is also known as ‘pitaya dulce’. The genus of this cactus is Stenocereus. It is a close relative to the Pitahaya aka Dragon fruit.
This fruit has begun to become a bit more common, well around my area. But it is still very hard to obtain in the US, and when available, it is very expensive.
It is a very sweet fruit, that has a taste of berry. It's a bit hard to describe the taste, but it is very delicious. Its fruit is refreshing like a prickly pear cactus fruit, but the seeds are small and crunchy like a Dragon fruit.
Disclaimer: I do not know how long it will take for the cactus to begin fruiting. They have not produced any fruit for me, because I assume they are still too young. As the pipe cactus grows, it grows more and more 'ribs' around it. As you can see, these have a few 'ribs'. The cactus thorns will be removed for shipping purposes. It will not effect the growth of the cactus.
I'm sorry I do not do international shipping. US states only, EXCEPT for HI, and AK. If you have any questions, feel free to send me a message. I will do my best to answer all questions.
Thank you! :)
Update: The winner will receive a second rooted cutting of the rare pitaya. You will be shipped 2 rooted cuttings
