    Default Pitaya in Florida

    My wife found this at a local Freshfield Farms store. Buzz it up in a blender, add lime juice and sugar, and it tastes like Nicaragua.

    It is all over the place here right now. I have yet to see it grown in real life, seen pics. I started some seeds 1 time and got them to sprout but that was all. I would like to grow a few just to say I did. Guess it is time to try again.

    How mush $ did it cost. I keep meaning to ask here but haven't.

    I had no idea that Pitaya translates to Dragon Fruit. I just assumed that it was one in a long line of local tropical fruit that cannot be found anywhere else and therefor has no other name.

    Hylocereus is native to the American tropics. Long ago French planters made an industry out of it in Vietnam, where it is still grown and exported to the US as "Dragon fruit". They generally used one of the white pulp varieties.
