Здравствуйте Сергей,

Главное проблема в России не лето а зима. Мороз будет убивать ваши питаи. Сколько градусов у вас зимой?

Успеха вам.

Хосе.
Hi, yes, of course, in winter it is very cold here. I'm going to move the dragon fruit for the winter in a warm room, where the temperature is +22 C

It'll be fine at 22c! The only time my dragon fruits died were when I let them get hit by frost, otherwise they're fine outside   under a pergola or frost cloth.   We got -7.6c last year and it didn't die from the cold, however, direct light frost in spring killed it. I have had many over the years, the biggest mistake I've made was thinking that they were hardened somewhat after living through winters and putting  them out in the spring only to be turned to mush by the lightest of frosts :(

Iíll take away my plants from the frost to a warm room, today we have another problem, since the beginning of July it rains every day, itís good that my dragon fruit is in the greenhouse, otherwise it would have drowned! :-\

Opuntia phaeacantha was planted in the open ground in the summer of 2018. Wintered without shelter in the frost -25C. This season is actively growing.

Very impressive what you are doing! How do you heat your greenhouse? How was the taste on the C. abutiloides?

Hi Oscar. Now I have a household heater installed in the greenhouse. I keep the plants in the greenhouse until the end of October and with the onset of cold weather I move them into the house. My house allows you to keep a large number of plants in 3 gallon pots in winter. In the spring with the onset of heat, I again move them to the greenhouse. Plans for the future to build a greenhouse with climate control. I tried this C. abutiloides the taste disappointed me. Very bitter peel, it interrupts the taste of the fruit, which seemed to me like a slightly sweet tomato.

It is not related to fruit, but it is very beautiful. Australian endemic Swainsona formosa grows in cold Russia! 8)

Is the C. abutiloides too small to make worth peeling before eating?

Verry nice flowers.If you like australian plants there is one you can plant it outdoor where you are,Eucalyptus Pauciflora Debeuzevillei.The most cold hardy eucalyptus with beautifull bark but beware that it poisons the soil like a walnut.

I think this eucalyptus is not able to survive in my area of ​​residence. From December to March, the temperature in my region ranges from -15 to -27 į C. But thanks for the advice, I appreciate it!

One of the few fruit trees in my garden is Juglans mandshurica. Very frost-resistant, the tree is 9 years old, this is the first fruiting.

As with most new garden setups I find it best to take your time and not go "Russian" into anything...........sorry capitalist Americansky smart a$$ sense of humor at work. 

Good lucksky!!! 😊😊😊
Blessed be the man who plants a tree knowing he will never live to enjoy it's fruit or shade.

Chernobyl is Ukraine. You should go in for education and not write nonsense.  8)
I appreciate humor when appropriate. But in this case, your jokes look stupid and inappropriate. If you have nothing to say on the case, then better keep silent.

Actually in 1986 when the reactor meltdown occurred Chernobyl was still part of the Russian USSR before the 1991 Communist collapse.  So don't nuke me bro.......Now you know why there are no famous Russian comedians.
