Selenicereus setaceus

Selenicereus setaceus Dragon Fruit is a broad variety of cacti fruit from different species. It is found in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, and Paraguay where it is presumed to be native. In these areas, the plant is known as “Saborosa” or “pitaya-do-cerrado” where it is sold as an exotic fruit at local markets. It’s natural habitats are tropical dry forests, tropical moist lowland forests, rocky shores, and sandy shores. Selenicereus setaceus also goes by the name  Pineapple Cactus.
The plant stems are olive-colored with meaty 3 sided growth that has shown to be a hardy grower. Thick, small spines occur along the rib of each stem. The fruits are considered small weighing around half a pound. The fruit has a red skin exterior with small fins and spines that easily brushed off the bottom of the fruit.  The fruit is similar to the Pink Panther variety. The flesh of the fruit is bright purple and has a very nice sweet taste with a Brix rating from 19 to 20. This variety was collected from a nursery in California.

    Last one listed on my list. Exceptional plant !! Just as I have said in the past – there’s always a wonderful surprise to be receive. What a way to complete my wish list. How was my experience you ask? I got Surprises, Big and Healthy Cuttings – some with roots (just another surprise!) and I was shown through my order the appreciation for my business.
