Purple Haze Dragonfruit Plant
Purple Haze Dragon Fruit is a hybrid variety that comes from Hylocereus guatemalensis and Hylocereus undatus. The fruit of Purple Haze has a bright purple flesh with a pink exterior and green fins with a refreshing sweet grape type flavor. Fruits are large and can range from 1.0 to 2.0 pounds, but for even more abundant fruit, try bud thinning. This variety typically has three fruiting cycles per the calendar year. Some internet research mentions Purple Haze to be self-pollinating. However, we found this not to be accurate. Instead, our flowers are self-sterile, meaning you will need another pollinator for the fruit to set.
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.
