I don't think they are in flower yet here. Maybe late August? They still ripen in time before the cold of late November.
There's a small commercial industry of California Dragon fruit. They sell for plenty..must be a good demand.

My plant typically flowers many times a year. The trick is to get out there late at night and pollinate it..then it will set fruit.

The fruit have a high nutritional value...lots of anti-oxidants. They're very good-tasting, also.

Yes, it produces some very large flowers. They only flower at night and morning, then die. If pollinated they produce really good fruit.
