Description Fine Print
 
Selenicereus megalanthus (syn. Hylocereus megalanthus) is a world-renowned and highly prized cactus vine that is cultivated for its sweet tasting dragon fruit or pitaya amarilla and enormous night-blooming fragrant flowers. The fruit is oblong and about 4-6 inches long by 3-4 inches wide with a bumpy yellow skin. The flesh is white with crunchy black seeds and super sweet, the sweetest of the dragon fruit. White flowers are nocturnal and usually last just one night where pollination is necessary to set fruit. A cool houseplant with the potential for delicious edible fruit.
