K1 Dragon Fruit variety comes from the genus Hylocereus and the species undatus. The fruit is self-fertile and is usually self-pollinating. This variety is most known for its very large fruit that typically weighs in at 1.5 to 3 pounds. This makes the fruit one of the largest of the white-fleshed varieties. It can be compared to the Vietnamese White variety in all aspects, just larger. The plant is fast-growing and very strong with minimal yellowing from the sun. In 2017 an interesting transition happened from flower bud to fruit. You can view how new stem growth turned into a flower bud by clicking here. This variety was acquired from a grower in California.
