Spicy Exotics Dragon Fruit story
After growing many types of plants over 30 years, we found our one love, Dragon Fruit. In 2006 we started with our first three varieties of Dragon Fruit plants. Since this time, Spicy Exotics has collected and grown over 100 varieties from all over the world. We are proud to say; Spicy Exotics is your source for over 100 varieties of Dragon Fruit plant cuttings for sale. Dragon Fruit or Pitahaya originated in Central America and can now be found in most tropical areas. In the USA, these areas include Hawaii, California, and Florida. It’s a subtropical vining cactus, so it loves lots of rain yet can tolerate dry weather. Most varieties are fast-growing, making them easily adaptable to new environments.
The plant is a vining cactus with fleshy three-sided growth and spins along the edge of this growth. The plant creates huge night-blooming flowers that are beautiful and fragrant. If the flower is pollinated, it will create one of the most amazing fruits. Varieties can have either red, pink, green, or yellow skin with white, pink, purple, or red flesh. The fruit size can vary as well, ranging from 0.5 pounds to a whopping 3.0 pounds. The fruit is easy to peel with a kiwi type texture and eatable seeds. Dragon Fruits have taste ranges from mild to sweet to complex flavors. Dragon Fruit is superb eaten chilled, but can also be enjoyed when juiced, cubed in salads, or even as jams.
