Dragon Fruit

GoldenManAugust 1, 2012

Hey All-

I currently grow American Beauty, Yellow, White Vietnam, and Halley's Comet Dragon Fruit in Southern California. I am currently in search of a David Bowie cutting/rooted plant. I have heard that these produce excellent fruit, and are very productive. Also, I stumbled upon two images online of what look like Orange Dragon Fruit? Does that exist? What is it called, I have never heard of it.

hmm, never heard of or seen an orange dragonfruit. the second pic looks more like a faded, or lighter colored red.

Thanks, the first one looks like an orange one though, no? If they exist I would love to get my hands on one :)

Also, im not interested in growing them from seeds, im not really a seed guy, I prefer cuttings, but if anyone else is interested, I found what looks like some seeds for orange ones for sale.
