Vivid Purpurea

Vivid Purpurea is a Dragon Fruit hybrid variety that comes from Hylocereus polyrhizus and another unknown species. Some internet research states the other species as an undatus, however, we have not confirmed this. This variety was originally introduced by a nursery in Southern California and it is unknown at this time where the nursery received it from.

The fruit flesh has a purplish reddish flesh with tiny green fins and no spines. Our first fruit had a weight a little over .6 pounds and a brix of 16. We expect both of these numbers to increase as the plant matures. Like most red flesh varieties, the fruit is high in antioxidants.

Flower bud to night-blooming flower is a typical 30 days then another 30 days to harvest in South Louisiana. The flowers of the Vivid Purpurea variety are beautiful and fragrant. On the night of pollination, we set fruit on the first attempt however additional test will be needed to determine if this variety is self-fertile.

Growth of the stem has a normal green color with three-sided edges that have several medium-sized spines. The growth resembles Hylocereus polyrhizus.  More information to come and update as the plant matures. Spicy Exotics aquired this variety from a tropical nursery in California. At this time Vivid Purpurea is not for sale.
