Delight Dragon Fruit is a hybrid variety that comes from Hylocereus undatus and Hylocereus guatemalensis. It is a self-pollinating and very fertile variety that will set fruit on its own. Spicy Exotics recommends hand pollination to ensure fruit or even greater sized fruit.  This variety is a seedling selection made by the California Rare Fruit Growers. Internet research has stated that the 3-S seedling created by Paul Thomson and Delight are to be the same. It is one of the several crosses from the Niezel, a white flesh variety and Rixford, a purple flesh variety. Spicy Exotics collected this variety from a tropical nursery in Louisiana.

Delights fruit is medium-sized fruit that typically weighs 1 pound. The flesh has a unique pink hue that has a delightful flavor, and this is where it gets its name. Flowers are enormous nocturnal blooms over 14 inches across and bloom all summer. Stems are green three-sided with small spines along the rib.

    Best cutting I have ever received. Very large and healthy. I will only buy from this web site))

    After thorough cleaning of the seeds from the pulp of the fruit, the seeds may be stored when dried.

    Got two of these cuttings the end of Oct 2017 and planted them in an Earth Box with trellis. It soon took off growing. I did minimal pruning. It is now flowering July 2018. Only 9 months from cutting to flower!!

    I got a beautiful cutting, nice and big as well. It is doing well in my pot, and until I buy a greenhouse for my dragon fruit plants, I put them inside for cold nights.
