    Here's a new variety of dragon fruit (Pitaya) called pineapple. It tastes almost identical to a regular pineapple and the fruit looks very similar plus it even has the top growth which is quite amazing!

    Just wondering where do you buy the seed or plant to start?

    This is a yellow dragon fruit variety and I got mine from the Caboolture markets. It has thorns so you don't see it sold as often by the big nurseries who tend to stock the thornless red fruit variety.

    The yellow one's are better tasting.
