I have found a few yellow fruited yellow skinned dragon fruit at my local grocery store that were delicious, but it has been hard to identify the variety or where to find them.  Does anyone have any experience with them?

Hello All,

I am looking for some suggested Good cross pollinators for my unnamed dragon fruit.  I am planning to build 2 trellises of known varieties and am hoping they will also pollinate my unknown variety (it is not self fertile).  I have heard good reviews about the sugar dragon S8, but what other 2-3 types are tasty and might bloom in a similar range. I was thinking to have maybe one reddish flesh, a yellow flesh, a white flesh and maybe a purple.

The unknown type

The spot is most likely blossom end rot and may turn black. It appears when there is a calcium deficiency or the watering schedule is off. 
Small spots can also occur when stink bugs and other hard insects bite the fruit.

Is there a good way to identify good cross pollinators?  Are sugar dragon and the purples likely to bloom at the same time?

I have read all of the previous pages and was looking for a little assistance.

I have a dragon fruit plant that was gifted to me a number of years ago.  I have flowers and the plant does not set fruit, so I think I need a different pollinator. 
I have tried self pollinating with a paint brush but have not had luck so far.  I would greatly appreciate some ideas about the actual variety and possible pollinators.  It is about to bloom again, so if anyone near Fort Myers has any extra pollen, I am available to pick it up, or I can pay for postage.

The person who gifted it to me said it was a sweet pink/red.  The flowers are mostly white with a touch of yellow.

here is a picture of a previous flower

There are generally 1-2 thorns on most branches
