The Dragonfruit Flower

Due to the iquanas and their critter cousins, I rarely get to enjoy eating a ripe Dragonfruit but, if I walk along the fence behind our house on an early summer evening or just after daybreak , I do get to be wowed by the sweet scent and massiveness of the beautiful Dragonfruit flower.

  1. I had never heard nor tasted dragonfruit before moving to this tropical locale. Here they are almost a weed:)
    It is similar to kiwi-pear in flavor but, really does have a flavor unto itself.

    1. This isn’t the pic I was looking for that I thought you posted..
      Maybe in the store is where I first saw it..
      But I was so sure I first saw the fruit in one of your posts.. ๐Ÿ˜

      They are expensive in the stores, even around Orlando.. If they ship well, I should ask you to pick me 6 of them, they are fairly light, organic and I bet the shipping cost would be cheaper than the store prices..
      My view of the darling iguanas has darkened a bit.. ๐Ÿ˜  dastardly thieves

      1. If the iguanas leave any, I’ll grab them for you. The dragonfruit plants really belong to our neighbor on the other side of the fence but what grows on this side of the fence stays on this side of the fence๐Ÿ˜‰
