They produce it as a crop in countries like Vietnam so you can definitely do it. There are a few videos on YouTube showing how they trellis the plants for optimal production.

I have just finished writing a post about dragon fruit. Most of my fruit are starting to ripen now (mid-winter) but we've eaten several already over the past few months.

It really is a stunning fruit to look at and I think they taste good too and so does the rest of my family. It's strange why dragon fruit isn't more common in western society. Here is a link to the dragon fruit article I wrote.

Hi Mark, great article. I am a newcomer to dragon fruit so I enjoyed reading this 2012 article and watching the linked video of the flower opening. Great work mate!
