Hylocereus undatus - Dragon Fruit Vine Flowers


Hylocereus undatus - Dragon Fruit Vine Flowers (Hylocereus undatus - Dragon Fruit Vine Flowers)

My Dragon fruit vine flowered again. It had many more flowers about two weeks ago. It flowers many times throughout spring, summer and fall. Photo taken Sept. 1, 2015.

A lot of people say they cant get them to fruit. I would tell them I do see big moths around here at night.
Congrats, I see them for $8 each at the Asian markets.

They need to be hand-pollinated late at night for them to produce fruit. The last flowering this plant had two dozen flowers and I didn't get to pollinate it; however, one fruit is developing. The fruit on this variety is very good and sweet! It's a very common vine here.

Thanks! :>)

This flowering is not so spectacular as usual. The last flowering a few weeks ago was very spectacular.

It's more dramatic with more flowers in the middle of the night. It's a night-blooming vine. I got one fruit on it that's almost ripe. I was upset I missed the big flowering a few weeks back because I didn't get to hand-pollinate the flowers to get more fruit. The fruits ripen very quickly within about 3 weeks. This variety has very sweet fruit, also. I've heard the salmon-colored variety has the sweetest of all varieties.

BathG, they are BIG flowers in person. A few opening at once like in the photo stands out at dusk.
