How To Pollinate Dragon Fruit

Our one and only Dragon Fruit is growing really well. But having never seen any flowers on it I was wondering how it would ever develop fruit.

I'm glad I came across this Dragon Fruit pollination video on YouTube, as it could also mean that I may need another 'tree' as a pollinator. Fingers-crossed that our 'tree' is a self-pollinator. I can't wait for the first flower.

Did you know that the best time to hand-pollinate a Dragon Fruit is between 10pm and 11pm?

  1. Hi Janine, my name is Nick and I am interested in growing a dragon fruit tree. I live in Hallett Cove and am not sure if it is suitable. BTW, have your tree fruited? It looks beautiful.
