1 x Pitaya – Hylocereus megalanthus Dragon Fruit Plant
Average size 15-20cm
These may be seedlings or unrooted cuttings – sent bare-rooted.

Yellow skin with White flesh: Hylocereus megalanthus is a smaller growing plant with more prickly spines and smaller fruit. The taste is more tangy than the red fleshed variety. Juicy with very nice flavour.

Homegrown fruit tastes much better than the supermarket produce.
Beautiful aromatic fruit 🙂


  • This is another great permaculture perennial, excellent low maintenance food production. Does well in large pots raised about a metre off the ground so the limbs can hang down – great way to get fruit.
  • Does best in full sun but grows well in part shade.
  • Beautiful cactus all year, even better once it flowers. Lovely scented flowers.
  • All of our plant products are grown organically in Queensland – no chemicals at all.



Upon receiving your plant it is best to pot up and water in with some diluted seaweed solution.
Plant cut end about 3-5cm deep into mixture of sand and compost (or potting mix). Do not water until you see new growth – this means roots have developed. Can then be watered as normal.
This cactus species can tolerate more water than most cactus, especially if they are in full sun.


Plants will only be sent out on Mondays (All locations) and Tuesdays (QLD/ Northern NSW only) to minimize the risk of being stuck in transit over the weekend.

Please be aware of your local laws/restrictions on the import of botanical products.

Happy gardening 🙂
