Spicy Exotics Dragon Fruit

Dragon Fruit or Pitaya (the real name) originated in Central America and now can be found in most tropical areas. In the USA these areas include Hawaii, California, and Florida. The plant is a vining cactus with fleshy three sided growth and spins along the edge of this growth. The plant creates huge night blooming flowers that are beautiful and fragrant. If the flower is pollinated it will create one of the most amazing looking fruits. Spicy Exotics Dragon Fruit can be either red, pink, green or yellow skin with white, pink, purple, or red flesh. The fruit sizes can vary depending on the varieties, ranging from 0.5 pounds to a whopping 3.0 pounds in size. The fruit is really easy to peel with a kiwi type texture and eatable seeds. Dragon Fruit varieties have taste ranges from little or no flavor to very sweet. In addition to this, some varieties add a complex attribute to the flavor. Dragon Fruit is superb eaten chilled, but can also be enjoyed when juiced, cubed in salads, or even as jams. For great uses of Dragon Fruit check out our Pinterest page.

 What are our customers saying

“I’ve ordered a number of cuttings from Spicy Exotics. They were all affordable and arrived quickly in great condition. The last “one” turned out to be a rooted plant with two branches which was the equivalent of three cuttings! The one before that was the biggest dragon fruit segment I have ever seen. The response to being on a waiting list for cuttings was the fastest I’ve experienced. I would highly recommend Spicy Exotics as a reliable source for dragon fruit cuttings as well as for interesting and informative videos on YouTube.”
