Purple Haze

Purple Haze Dragon Fruit is a hybrid variety that comes from Hylocereus guatemalensis and Hylocereus undatus. The fruit of Purple Haze has a bright purple flesh with a pink exterior and green fins with a refreshing sweet grape type flavor. Fruits are large and can range from 1.0 to 2.0 pounds, but for even more abundant fruit, try bud thinning. This variety typically has three fruiting cycles per the calendar year. Some internet research mentions Purple Haze to be self-pollinating. However, we found this not to be accurate. Instead, our flowers are self-sterile, meaning you will need another pollinator for the fruit to set. In 2015, we recorded a fruit just over 2 pounds that had a brix score of 19. This plant has typical Hylocereus undatus three-sided growth that is very aggressive and fills in quickly. Additional internet research has stated that 5-S and Purple Haze are the same. The 5-S is seedling created by Paul Thomson and mentioned in his book Pitahaya. 5-S is a cross between Rixford, a purple-fleshed variety, and Niezel, a white-fleshed variety. Spicy Exotics collected this Dragon Fruit variety from a tropical nursery in Louisiana.

    Out of all the varieties I’ve collected this one has been by far the quickest to show new growth! It also was the fattest cutting I’ve ever received. I can’t wait to be able to try this ones fruit!!

    2 years and set 2 flowers
    neither produced fruit.
    i dont have another that is flowering, so i guess it does not self polinate as stated.
    it does grow very fast though.
    i let it climb the side of my house.
    in 1 season it climbed from the ground to the roof line and under the eve.
    1 segment had to be over 9ft.

      Purple Haze is not self-fertile. This is what is stated in my description “Internet research has mentioned this variety known to be self-pollinating however I have not found this to be true. For me, fruit has not set on its own and hand pollination or mother nature is to needed produce fruit.”

    Please let me know and I will purchase from you if you have such a variety!!
    I went into lots of troubles construction real structural building with lots of costs and sweat and tears to finish construction and all I get huge while flowers and no fruits!!! I am like a madman pollination these flowers whole night with soft cosmetic brush stolen from my wife cosmetic set( ha ha ha ) and no results.
    The plant is super healthy and huge ( maybe 3 meters tall ) and very healthy facing the sun all day!!! Huge glorious flowers but
