Princess T and I took an impromptu Girl's Day Out, having Lunch together and going to "The Spirit Store" and some Chazzas, stopping by our Showroom at the Antique Mall to bring in more Inventory, purchasing some small Cacti for me to put in my small Collection of 'Macayo's' Planters. I also picked up a Dragon Fruit Cacti at the Plant Nursery, first time I'd ever seen them for Sale anywhere, and tho' I Love Dragon Fruit, I honestly didn't know they are the Fruit of a Cactus! Mine is quite small right now, but I got one that looked the most robust, since they can be a very thin Cactus. I didn't know they trellis as they grow tho'.
The Fruit are expensive to buy in the Stores, so I'll try my hand at growing my own now. The Plant was only as expensive as buying 3 of the Fruit at the Grocery Store, so it's worth chancing it. Here's what a Mature Specimen bearing the Colorful Fruit looks like, as the Branches trellis. Hopefully I don't have to wait 'til mine looks like that before I get a Harvest? *LOL* I kind of like the way it grows and weeps, almost like a Cactus Willow and the Fruit of coarse are striking visually. The interior is White, Magenta, Pink or Red with Black Seeds and very Mild tasting. Online it says in 6-9 Months you could have a plant bearing Fruit, not bad, but potted it could take up to 2 Years.
