A Cactus Tree with Delicious Tropical Fruit!

Here's why you should make this the year of the Dragon Fruit :

  • Exotic cactus tree with versatile, tropical appeal
  • Gorgeous, flaming-pink colored fruit
  • Large white flowers with a sweet fragrance
  • Climbing vine grows well in dry areas


Enter the Dragon Fruit Tree

Bring beauty and intrigue to your garden or landscape with the Dragon Fruit tree. A member of the cactus family, this incredible fruit tree is full of great surprises. For starters, the tree itself has an exotic appeal unlike any other. The palm-like trunk leads up to a twisty patchwork of cactus looking vines. This Southeast Asian-style tree would make an excellent specimen for an oriental garden or tropical motif.

Adding a burst of color are the large white blossoms that can grow to nearly a foot long. These lovely flowers are as fragrant as they are beautiful. But the real prize is the Dragon Fruit itself. Everything about the fruit is wonderfully different. From its elliptical shape to its striking neon-pink color, the Dragon is a jaw dropping standout in the landscape. In fact, we can't think of any other fruit that's more visually appealing than this one.

Dragon Fruit Smoothie anyone?

Perhaps the only thing more interesting than the Dragon Fruit's looks is the way it tastes. Easily peel away the pink outer skin and inside you'll find a milky white flesh speckled with tiny black seeds similar to those of a kiwi, adding a crunchy texture to its juicy pulp. Similar to a cross between a melon and a pear, the sweet yet slightly sour taste is delicious, especially when eaten chilled.

Use Dragon Fruit to make a homemade sorbet, smoothie or tropical drink that will refresh and satisfy any summer thirst. It's also a savory ingredient when used in jellies, jams--even sauces. Not only does the Dragon Fruit offer a diversity of useful options in the kitchen, it's also said to be one of the healthiest fruits on earth.

Don't delay. Let the Dragon Fruit work its magic in your garden.

Love it
I purchased the 3-gallon tree in August 2014. It arrived green, healthy and well packed. It came with boards attached to keep the cactus limbs upright. I replanted tree in a huge container for the patio and left the boards intact. The cactus limbs are growing great. Because I left the boards intact, the shorter limbs are growing longer; so I just tied strings to the short limbs and connected them to the boards until they are more stable. Waiting to see the fruit this spring.

Dragon fruit cactus
I love this cactus !!! When I recieved the dragon fruit it was well packed with a small wood trellis.. I got it in November 2014 and planted it the next day . When the temperature went below 50 I wraped it with special tree wrap I got from lowes . My dragon fruit is doing great . It has a lot of new growth. Im amazed at how fast it grows . I can't wait to see its transformation over the next couple of months. I'm looking forward to the fruit it will produce . Once again thanks pans fast growing trees . Always satisfied with all my purchases. I would definitely recommend buying this cactus . Very unique.

Dragon Fruit Cactus
What a fun plant this is! It has made such a wonderful addition to the special plants that I am growing this year. We have seen this plant growing in EPCOT in Florida and couldn't wait to get our own Dragon Fruit. The best part is going to be the interesting fruits that it produces. This is the most unusual plant that we have; and, it generates lots of questions from friends and neighbors.

Fun to watch it grow!
I have been fascinated with dragon fruits ever since finding one at the grocery and trying it. It has the nicest flavor in such an unusual shape. I received my cactus about a month ago at approximately a foot tall. Since then it has doubled in height. I did not realize that it has air roots that help it attach itself to the post where I have it growing. The air roots help support the plant and it doesn't seem to need much else for support, though I do have it tied with a velcro strip as well. I can't wait until it is big enough to produce fruit!! I love it, and am very satisfied with the speed in which it was delivered and how healthy a plant it was.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Dragon Fruit Cactus



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Dragon Fruit Cactus.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Dragon Fruit Cactus gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Dragon Fruit Cactus again after the transplant is complete.

looked interesting
Nick E on Aug 22, 2016
It's very unusual and I have been watching the growth of a giant one (about 25 feet) for about a year, that is poking through a fence and large evergreen shrubs at the edge of my neighborhood. At first, I thought it was a "Giant" Christmas cactus, but then I figured out what it was and watched a few Youtube videos on it. It looks interesting, it's exotic, and it will be fun sharing the fruit with my neighbors and friends.

My dragonfruit trees bear flowers, which I hand pollinate at night since bees come only in the daylight; but unfortunately it is not setting fruit. What could it be?
Mariem B on Jul 19, 2014
Best Answer: You may need to hand pollinate twice a day by taking a paint brush and gently running it over each bloom. Make sure that the paint brush is dry and that you don't wash it. Otherwise you may want to consider getting your Dragon Fruit Cactus a mate to pollinate with.

I live in zone 7 is there any way possible the dragon fruit cactus tree can be planted in the ground rather than in a pot on a patio?
JOYCE M on Apr 29, 2016
Best Answer: Hi Joyce. It is unlikely. I'm in Zone 8 and there are several times a year I still cover mine. I guess an option would be if you are willing to build a greenhouse-type over it for the colder months, and water it when needed. I'm on my 2nd dragonfruit tree, because I just left the first one in the ground (again, in zone 8), and it froze. It very seldom even gets to freezing here, so with this one I have now it's in a planter and I bring it into the garage in the winter. Thankfully our winters in Savannah only last about 6-8 weeks.
Good luck!

How do I get a mate for higher fruit yield? Do I simply buy 2 and keep them near each other?
Marilyn D on Sep 19, 2014
Best Answer: I've heard of people trying that, but honestly most successful growers of this fruit that I know of hand pollinate. Using a soft fluffy brush or similar techniques, flower to flower. You can watch a tutorial on you tube ;)

can this plant grow in middle ga and will it grow in clay dirt?
gwendolyn h on Jun 13, 2015
Best Answer: I live in Metro Atlanta, GA. I purchased the plant and it arrived very healthy with lots of cactus limbs. I did not replant it and it continued to grow fast in the pot provided. This is a cactus; once the temperature drops below 50 or 60 degrees bring it inside QUICK. Cactus thrive in hot weather. I would not suggest planting it in the ground because when it gets cold, the plant will die in the ground. The plant may survive later once it's grown into a tree.
