Halley’s Comet Dragonfruit Plant
Halleys Comet Dragon Fruit is a hybrid variety that comes from Hylocereus undatus and Hylocereus guatemalensis. Fruits have a pink outside with green abbreviated fins and purple flesh inside that typically weigh 1.0 to 2.0 pounds. The flesh is sweet.
It is debated whether Halleys Comet is self-fertile. Some say it does set fruit on its own but others say that it does not. However, I would recommend having another variety for cross pollination.
Easily adapted to a variety of growing conditions and soils, this beautiful night blooming cactus produces fruit best when allowed to climb on a wooden trellis or your favorite tree. The huge round flowers are highly fragrant and beautiful in form, usually lasting just one night.
These are rooted Dragonfruit cuttings. Transplant as soon as possible.
The Dragonfruit will produce fruit in about 2-3 years.
Please note that Dragonfruit does not like the cold so it will need protection in the winter if you live in an area that gets frost or freeze.
For best fruit production, build a stand for support.
