You got pretty good suggestions on the dragonfruit varieties. 

But I dont know how those do in florida but they produce well here.  My trees are loaded with s8, condors, dark stars.  Paloras its yet to see how they do in CA, havent seen anyone grow them but maybe theres a few out here. 

Honestly you dont need huge pieces, it really makes little difference if you get a 1ft piece or 2ft piece.  Its going to grow.  I usually just start them from 6-8" pieces.  If its hot there, they are going to grow fast either way.  When I sell to others its usually 12"to 18" just because people think they need big pieces. 

You can send a private message if you want to buy cuttings.

I emailed you

Agreed. DF travels well.

If you are down my way (So. Miami), can hook you up with nice sized and well-rooted Dark Star plants.

Thank you Rob. I will stop by if I am down your way.

Onur why do they need to come from FL?  I have all these dragonfruit and can send them in the mail 2 day priority no problem.

Thank you Brad.
I just thought I could go and pick them up rather than getting them shipped, so I can get longer cuttings. Two years ago, I sold my collection for almost free, now I am struggling to find few cuttings.

Brad, may I also have your opinion on 4 best dragon varieties in terms of production and flavor?

Can you send me long cuttings?

Which other self pollinating and self fertile ones would you recommend in terms of flavor and production?
And what is the price?

For sure yellow dragon fruit!

I tasted a store bought Giant Yellow Ecuador. Didn't really like it. Found it too sweet and flavorless. Maybe it was a bad one...

Who knows, maybe we just have very different preferences with dragon fruit.  For example any other dragonfruit aside from the yellow is basically tasteless and not worth growing for me.

You are right. Taste is personal preference. Thank you for the recommendation.

I have all 3

Do you think I can grow 4 different varieties in a big container? What would be the fourth one? Would they fruit without hand-pollination?

Thank you for the reply. Would they bloom at the same time so they produce fruits? I guess SD will pollinate the others right? Does American beauty require hand pollination?

Hello

If you are to grow 4 different varieties of self-fertile and self-pollinating dragon fruits in the same container, which 4 would you recommend in terms of production and flavor ?

Thank you

50's would be like a vacation in the Caribbean to a Feijoa in the Fall/Winter. They are very hardy...I suspect that even for seedlings. No protection necessary

Hello

I have two small feijoa trees with 1/3" trunk thickness in north of Mississippi.  At nights, the temp goes down to 10s. Can I protect them by wrapping with a light color cotton bed sheet? And do I need to leave the sheet on till the spring? Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks
Onur
