A very Strange Mutant Dragonfruit.
« on: May 24, 2019, 11:26:48 PM »
Came across this on Gumtree ZA. Supposedly a hybrid between a Hylocereus and a Gymno sp of some description. Pretty fugly. I wonder how the fruit will turn out, or if it ever will?

Bizarre. I wonder if it will stabilise as it grows or will continue to grow monstrously.

Your guess is as good as mine.

I've seen something similar done with a hylocereus and Geomoterizans Hybrid grown from seed. Hope you read that correctly, Taxonomists....
