Vietnamese White is a variety imported from Vietnam. It has night blooming large fragrant flowers that emerge in late spring to early fall. When pollination occurs an egg-shaped pink colored fruit with green fins will appear. This variety has a white flesh that is tangy with a watermelon texture and small eatable seeds. In fact, the dramatic color contrast between the inside and outside is what makes this variety so popular among growers and consumers worldwide. Stems are three-sided with small spines along the rib. Budding is very heavy and is suggested to thin out to produce even larger fruit. If you are a first time Dragon Fruit grower, this is the choice for you. The main reason why is this variety is self-pollinating meaning it will set fruit without being hand pollinated. These varieties were acquired from a grower in California and Texas.
