Tons of Tasty Fruit and Tropical Appeal

Add a unique, vining cactus plant to your garden or patio with the American Beauty Dragon Fruit. This fast-growing evergreen plant isn't only beloved for its tropical fruit - it's ideal for adding interest to fences and walls, since it will climb up any structure.

Three-sided stems with small spines give the American Beauty Dragon Fruit an eye-catching appearance. But the real show comes from its large, fragrant flowers - the Dragon Fruit blooms at night in early spring to fall, and its flowers close by morning. If you want to catch your Dragon Fruit in bloom, head out with a flashlight late at night or early in the morning!

Flowers develop into the American Beauty's signature magenta fruits, which can weigh up to a pound. The American Beauty Dragon Fruit has a hot pink exterior with green scales, and red inner flesh is dotted with edible black seeds. The tropical, exotic fruit is perfect for eating fresh or incorporating into juices or smoothies.

Your American Beauty Dragon Fruit can experience multiple bloom cycles during the warmer months, and mature plants can have 3-4 fruiting cycles once established. Even better? This Dragon Fruit is self-fertile - you don’t need an additional pollinator to enjoy the fresh, tropical fruits.

While the American Beauty loves the heat and humidity of warmer climates and will thrive outdoors in zones 10-11, you can plant your Dragon Fruit in a pot in cooler climates - just bring it indoors when temperatures drop in winter. Grow your American Beauty Dragon Fruit with a central support to help it develop a strong central trunk, or let the vines drape around a container.
