8-S Dragon Fruit Cactus (hylocereus polyrhizus)

The fruits produced by Thomson 8-S aka Sugar Dragon Dragon Fruit are red with red tips in color with a neon red, delicious flesh inside that is edible and sweet. Thomson 8-S is a wonderful mid yield, self pollinating variety, medium in size weighing on average 0.7 – 0.9 lbs. Easily adapted to a variety of growing conditions and soils, this beautiful night blooming cactus produces fruit best when allowed to climb on a burlap wrapped totem, trellis or your favorite tree. The huge 10-16 inch round flowers are highly fragrant and beautiful in form, usually lasting just one night.
