The dragon fruit plant is a rare find in the Netherlands. The plant comes with a hanging pot. Dragon fruit is one of the easiest fruits to grow indoors, it is from the cactus family so prefers a dry warm environment and doesn't need much care when it is settled.
Give it strong sunlight and water it once every two weeks or more depends on your room humidity level.
Dragon fruit is an incredible cactus that produces strange looking fruit resembling a magical dragon egg. Cut through the vibrant pinky red skin to reveal white or pink flesh speckled with tiny black seeds. The taste is hard to pin down with some saying it’s a sweet mix of mild kiwi fruit, watermelon, strawberry and pear flavours. Others describe it as only vaguely sweet or even savoury.
If the fruit isn’t enough to you tempt you then don’t forget the flowers. Their stunning large flowers are easily over 20cm wide and appear in summer. They are yellowy green on the outside and open to a scented white, lily like bloom. Flowers open in the evening and only last one night. It’s the perfect excuse to host an evening cocktail party and enjoy their blooms!
