Red Dragonfruit (Pitaya) Seeds
This listing is for organically grown on Maui RED Dragonfruit (Pitaya) SEEDS. Please choose your size seed packet at checkout (10, 25 or100 Seeds)
This fruit has a red skin and a deep rich red pulp. This plant is a cactus that appreciates strong full sun. Once this plant matures it will produce very large blossoms (shown) and then exotic looking and tasting fruits.
Your Maui grown Dragonfruit seeds will arrive packed in damp paper toweling inside a sealed plastic baggie. You can keep a good eye on your tiny black Dragonfruit seeds if you let them germinate indoors in a dark area of the house in the plastic baggie/damp paper towel that they arrive in. No cool temperatures please, 70-90 degrees is ideal. The little black Dragonfruit seeds will sprout tiny green tails that at first just look like a fleck of bright green moss. They will slowly but steadily grow from that green fleck. You can also start all of your seeds in one communal pot of good potting soil and water sparingly. Perhaps try both germination methods, see what works best for you.
Remember that this plant is a cactus and the seedlings do not look the same as other plants. Patience is needed when growing plants from seeds. I highly suggest the damp paper towel/plastic baggie method for these seeds. You can observe their germination development better against the white paper toweling than in the soil.
