If the yellow Dragonfruit you are referring to is the yellow Megalanthus and not the Undatus, it usually pollinates itself. Sometimes smaller younger plants will abort their flowers.

But Megalanthus and Undatus can be pollinate with red dragon fruits with pink flesh?

I am not an expert with Dragonfruit but from my limited knowledge, they can crosspollinate.

The Megalanthus usually blooms later in the season when everything else has stopped flowering.
