Year of the Dragon - Fruit!
For the last 3 years, my Pitaya /Dragon Fruit plant Hylocereus undatus had teased me with beautiful blossoms but never rewarding me with any fruit. It seems it was just waiting for Year of the Dragon to start fruiting! I was pleasantly surprised to see that the blossom did not just fall off but two dragon fruits had formed on the plant. One of them has develop a beautiful pinky red color and the other has just a blush of color. I am not sure if they are of the same plant. It am excited to taste the fruit finally!!
September - flower
This blossom will turn into the blush colored Pitaya
One of the blossom turned yellow and will not grow to be a Pitaya
The remaining blossom has developed into a pinky red Pitaya
Just a touch of blush on this Pitaya
