Pepino Dulce

Pepino Dulce Dragon Fruit variety is a Hylocereus genus and a undatus species. The name Pepino Dulce means Sweet Cucumber in Spanish. Spicy Exotics collected this variety from a tropical grower in California.


The plant of Pepino Dulce is typical of undatus growth in size and shape. The stems are segmented and three-sided with small thorns. Segments can get long but are sturdy.


Flowers of this variety are self-fertile, with a bloom size measuring 15 inches across. The flowers are largest when fully open a few hours after sunset and close a couple of hours after sunrise. The bloom period, like most undatus varieties, is Summer and Fall. One thing to consider, since the first flowers open in the summer, you will not have pollen for your spring bloomers. The pollen of Pepino Dulce works well with most other varieties during its bloom cycle.


The fruits weigh about 1.25 pounds with pink skin and green fins. From flower bud to fruit, it took 45 days. The flesh color is white throughout with a firm texture. The longer the fruit is on the vine, the sweeter it gets. This fruit is ideal for smoothies or eaten like a chilled melon.
