This is an unknown variety of dragon fruit I got as a tiny cutting. It's grown quite a bit in this tiny pot. I hope it's a good-eating variety of dragon fruit! Photo taken Jan. 6, 2020.

I have many larger ones. My large dragon fruit vine produces fruit every year.

wow, that's good then. Do you eat the fruit? we tried them once but I think my girls were disappointed so they haven't asked for them again.

Yes, I eat the fruit. It cost 5 or 6 dollars for one dragon fruit in the stores. Many people grow dragon fruit here in San Diego.

Here's a few pics of my dragon fruit.
