So I ate the last two of this fruit and saved seeds.  It tasted better than any other dragon fruit I have had.  Considering I have not had any premium dragon fruit, this might mean precious little.

I germinated a few and have a whole lot more left.
Anyone interested in some I will be glad to share.

I understand it might take a very long time to get fruit from seed and folks would rather have cuttings.  Well I have no cuttings yet and will not for many moons.  So seed it is this go around.

By the way, this is not a business I just have seeds from a fruit I liked and that I would be happy to share.  I may make you pay for shipping.
If you know there are restrictions to shipping seeds to your location please

What dragon fruits do you have? thanks

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Golden or Yellow Dragon Fruit?
« on: January 16, 2018, 06:52:22 AM »
I was at a local international food store a week or so ago and saw these yellow dragon fruit.
Interestingly I had just been looking and just purchased seeds of the "GIANT YELLOW MEGALANTHUS SEEDS FROM PERU XL" -Thanks Dragonfruit101.

Well I had to try one and I liked it.
I picked up a couple more today and thought I should share photos to see if these could be properly identified.
The reciept refered to them as Golden Gragon Fruit.
The label says Ecuador Divine, I don't know if they are from Ecuador or that's just the variety.

Note they are not irradiated so I guess seeds are viable.

Anyone wants some seed I am sure there will be more than enough to share.

I might even eat a couple more just for you  :)

Back to my question, what is this and will it go well in Florida,  The fruit is about 5 inches long and a tad over 3 inches across and weighs 14 ozs.  It looks like it had thorns that have been removed.  Says Ecuador Divine

PS, these two were on the larger size, there were many smaller ones and few this size or larger.




Where did you find gold at? Which store, since i am located in palm beach was it the one by 45th and military trail?

i am also looking for asunta family but only place said until May

Edgar just posted a video on his YouTube channel where he tries the yellow dragon thatís being imported into California. Near the end of the video he explains that you can grow the plant in Cali but the fruit wonít be big compared to the ones being grown in their natural climate like Peru, Columbia and Ecuador. He stated that itís because it blooms in nov and dec and that when the fruit starts to form itís too
cold here in Cali. Thatís one reason why the fruit doesnít get large.
got a link to that?

How long from Cutting to bear fruit for Frankies Red?

I tried one of the asuntas but don't remember the number. It was very good for me even though the fruit was a runt and slightly under ripe. Its white flesh with coconut overtones. Very unique trait that I have never tried in dragon fruit.
Thanks for update, just waiting to get some from Matts Landscape in Cali, but he said wont be ready to ship until April/ May
