Bruni Dragon Fruit is a hybrid variety that comes from Hylocereus stenopterus and Hylocereus undatus. It is one of three hybrids created by German hybridizer Eckhard Meier. The other two varieties are Connie Mayer and Kathie Van Arum. These are also offered on our online store. The flower is a medium-sized bloom with inner petals being purple shading to light pink edges and white tips. The flower bud is equally impressive as the flower. In Louisiana, the flower opens at dusk and closes at sunrise. When compared to other varieties this is much earlier. The growth is tinder large three-sided that is typical of Hylocereus. Spines are often a single thorn differing from Connie Mayer and Kathie Van Arum varieties. Fruits are small and plentiful often weighing .25 to .75 pounds. The green skin when ripe has a transparent pink color with lemon-lime green fins and having a white flesh. The longer the fruit is on the vine the sweeter it gets.
