Its the season of fruiting of dragon fruit again. You can see lots of big white flowers blooming at night and after one month a knuckle-size red fruits hanging in the post. The photo above is one of our dragonfruit in our backyard. We have more than 50 posts of dragon fruit. Most of the posts have fruits and its just so beautiful watching them with that fruits. The fruit is green when not yet ripe but as soon as the fruit is riping it turn into red. Dragonfruit looks like pineapple but with lesser eyes and the colors are red. Its a miracle fruit that is so beneficial to our health. I took the photo.

@wiLLmaH dragonfruits usually bloom flowers by the month of May and then at June you can taste the first batch of fruits.

Here there are also dragon fruits and they become to be a common fruit already. I remember they were not available here some years ago. Lately I often make the dragon fruit juice. If I can add the passion fruit inside, the juice will be much more delicious

I honestly don't know that dragon fruit can grow in the Philippines. I thought it can only grow in other Asian countries.
