    Does anybody here grow Dragon Fruit (Hylocereus undatus). I saw one of these huge cactuses for myself the other day, the fruit is simply amazing! I have got to have one of these. Anyone know where I can find seeds of this? Here's a pic of the cool fruit:

    Yes, I have these, they are my favourite cactuses, I have grew those from seeds. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    They sell these fruits in foodstores, buy one and take seeds from the fruit. They will germinate fine. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Cool! How old do they have to be before they start producing the fruits?

    weird that you mention about this since i ate this fruit yesterday , called it dragon fruit and my realtive actually thought the other way , lol . i've never grown them from seed but i hear it takes a while to grow . my grandfathers plants are absolutly huge and he says he trims them so much that he could use the trimming as cuttings to make more plants . i would be willing to trade some decent sized cuttings if any body is interested and i also have a different species that makes round fruit with no leves sticking out of it . this year there were tons of flowers and fruit and the biggest i've seen so far was 1/2 the size of a football and the flowers are bright yellow and bloom at night . the fruits i see from the store are pirckly pear and its sour a bit , i prefer pitahayas .

    so if anybody wants to trade for cuttings then pm me [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Just received some seeds of the red fleshed variety yesterday. If they fail to germinate, I'll take you up on your cuttings offer [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
