You are purchasing 5 Dragon Fruit cuttings for rooting; easy to root.
They will be between 12in. - 36in. length/each. Only the healthiest cuttings will be picked (at time of purchase).
***Does NOT require another variety to get fruit production. However, I would highly recommend hand pollinating. Use the pollen from one flower, on another open flower. And that open flowers' pollen on a different flower. From my experience, using a different flowers pollen, instead of the flowers own pollen, increases the chance of getting larger fruit.***
The dragon fruit cuttings are of the Hylocereus Undatus species (aka White-Flesh, Pink/Magenta skin). The specific variety is unknown.
Origin: The mother plant was grown from cuttings brought from Mexico.
Fruit/Taste: The fruit is a pink to magenta skin, with white flesh. At full ripeness, the fruit is very sweet. The fruit does get fairly large, up to almost 2lbs. The cuttings are coming from a healthy mature fruit bearing dragon fruit plant. I spray the mother dragon fruit with a neem oil spray.
Pictures: All the pictures belong to me! They were all taken in late 2019. The pictures of the actual dragon fruit (outer fruit, weight, & inside of fruit) were taken Oct. 4, 2019. The dragon fruit in the pictures (being weighed and cut open) was harvested on Oct. 4, 2019. & is one of the larger fruits harvested this year!

Thank you! :)
P.S. Original listing was misleading to the variety name. It is not the 'Mexicana" variety as I previously thought. This is an unknown variety of the Hylocereus Undatus (white-flesh) species. But everything else is accurate; it is self-fertile, self-pollinating & very sweet! It's surprisingly sweet because white-flesh DF is not commonly known for being sweet. But I can verify this UNK variety is sweet, picked at peak-ripeness. Do not pick over-ripe or it tends to lose sweetness.
It makes for a perfect starter or additional variety, I can guarantee you will get fruit production! (:
