Wax apple is light sweet, crunchy, and lightly astringent, and must be protected from the sun.

There are a few varieties out there:

Thai jumbo
red diamond
black pearl
green diamond
red rocket
perfume
black kingkong.

Thai jumbo
red diamond
black pearl
green diamond
red rocket
perfume
black kingkong.
What's the difference between the varieties?

Thai jumbo (big and green)
black diamond (dark purple)
black pearl ( simular to black diamond)
green diamond (green)
red rocket (long purple)
perfume ( large and smell like perfume)
black kingkong. (improved version of black diamond/pearl?)

They have sweet level of red dragon fruit.  Some of the fruits are seedless.

You can order from this website.  I ordered the Green Diamond and Missile from it, but the tree is very small, and need a lot of care.  The bad part I don't like is there is no label for the trees, don't know what varieties.

As far as I know all those varieties are only availabe on the West Coast. I have never seen these named varieties at an East Coast Nursery.
