Planting and Harvest

Since dragon fruit is spread by lodging slices, begin with a factory that you purchased. Plant outside in a well-drained, fertile area. Tropical regions allow for year-round planting. Younger stores require consistent watering for the first time. In general, they are less resilient to failure than other cacti. Dragon fruit cactus can reach heights of up to 20 bases (3–6 m) and widths of up to 10 bases (3 m). One factory per 14-inch (35 cm) wide pot is used in the holders. An incredibly beautiful houseplant for warm, bright windows is the dragon fruit. For your area, our Garden Diary can generate a verified schedule of when to plant, sow, and harvest.

Growing Dragon Fruit: Key Notes

Native to Mexico and Central America, dragon fruit cactus starts bearing fruit in its third year.

Secure young plants to a post for a tree-like cluster growth.

Wear thick gloves due to the plant’s spines.

Wrap the plant in paper when transplanting to prevent injury.

Dragon fruit cactus flowers are edible and bloom at night.

Fruit flesh varies in color: white, yellow, or red.

In tropical climates, mature plants require support and regular pruning for vigor.

Trim out old or broken branches two to three times annually to maintain plant health.


When the dragon fruits gently twist free, they are ready to be collected. After harvesting, refrigerate to prevent the fruits from softening.

Fixing issues

Dragon fruits require frequent irrigation, although excessive moisture can cause root rotting. While circumstances and insects are uncommon, beast pests are well-known for gathering almost-ripe fruits.
