    You all keep mentioning dragonfruit. I have seen dragonfruit here in the grocery. Is it possible to start a plant from the seeds of the ripe fruit?

    Yes it is Patty, but it will take many years to get the plants to fruiting age.
    The seeds need to be correctly processed and apparently can take up to 12 mths to germinate.
    Surely in Mexico there are DF growing or farmed?
    Its so easy to grow DF from cutting.

    Oh yes, I can buy the fruit here. Not sure where I could buy a cutting. I may check into that. The plants look so lovely. But it sounds like it is not worth it for me to try growing my own. We plan on moving in a couple of years. There are plenty of other great plants I can grow.

    They grow very well in containers so that could be an option?
