Product information
  • Article number: HYLUND01

Hylocereus undatus or Pitahaya is also known under the names pitaya, pitaja, dragon fruit or dragon fruit.
This tropical fruit is very common in Asia, especially in Thailand, but also in southern Mexico and other South American countries with a tropical climate.

Hylocereus undatus is a highly branched cactus with a hanging habit. They can be more than 5 meters long if they are not pruned.
At the ends of the branches, the flowers appear white in color and up to 10 cm in size.
The flowering often takes place in the evening (but also during the day) and the plant can then be pollinated by placing your hand in the heart of the inflorescence and then shaking it a few times. Then you go back to the next flower with the same hand.
In Thailand, flowers are bombarded by bats during the night.

The special fruit that then grows on the Pitaya is oval in shape 15 to 20 cm in size and in principle green in color. This becomes bright pink in color and is then ripe.
The flesh is white and tastes very aromatic and contains a high concentration of antioxidants.
May be fertilized with Cactus focus for healthy growth. 
Winter hardiness zone 11 (+ 6ºC).

De Pitaya komt eigenlijk oorspronkelijk uit Midden-Amerika en Zuid-Amerika, maar lekkere vrucht!
