Dragon Fruit Bumper Crop

10.5 Dragon Fruit Bumper Crop 1


It takes about two months from the time the dragon fruit blossoms to when it's ripe for eating. I have no idea why I had such a bumper crop in 2009, but not in previous years.

Of course, not all dragon fruit are so easily accessible.

I had to climb on a chair and really stretch to reach some fruit. Others, had to be extricated carefully on account of the tiny thorns. It is a cactus fruit, after all.

Ah, but for bounty such as this, so worth it. I harvested nearly a dozen dragon fruit this time, in addition to a sporadic fruit here or there.

  2. Lili,
    It's slightly sweet, but not too much.
