Yellow Pitahaya/Yellow Dragon Fruit (Pitahaya amarilla) 黃龍果

Yellow Pitahaya/Yellow Dragon Fruit (Pitahaya amarilla) 黃龍果

Yellow Pitahaya/Yellow Dragon Fruit (Pitahaya amarilla) 黃龍果

Nice tropical fruit!  Interesting yellow outside look and white sweet flesh with black seeds inside!  The fruit was prickly but when fruit is ripe the pricks will fall easily becomes the look in the image.  Easy to grow from seeds although will take a while to flower, normally commercial growers will propagate by grafting usually use red dragon fruit as the root stock because the root system is more active and strong.   And require a fairly steady support because fruit will be heavy.  Best in full sun location, well drained soil.  Will require cross-pollination to fruit to ensure better quality of fruit.   It is a climber, mature size can reach up to 20′ long.  Large fragrant white flowers.

黃色有突起的外皮,白色的果肉很甜很有滋味. 種子比一般火龍果大些,  水果有刺但果實成熟後自己會掉刺或容易去掉刺後就如照片上一樣變成無刺的果. 容易栽種在溼熱的熱帶氣候. 異花授粉. 須要有穩固的支架供其攀爬,植株可長到20呎長.  全日照,可以種子繁殖但多用嫁接方式來繁殖.  花大,白色有香氣.
