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.

Is that the one with pinkish flesh inside? It is said to be sweeter than the one with white flesh inside. So you have 50 posts of dragonfruits. You can already sell a lot.

I have seen the fruit but the plant itself I have not yet. I was surprised to see it in your picture I was not imagining it to be like that. I am just wondering why this fruit likes your place very much. I know that the fruit is foreign to us before but when people started planting it they literally thrive well in your place specifically.

The promotion that it is medicinal gain the popularity of the fruit.

@ilocosboy And I guess the tupe if soil is suitable for the plant to grow well despite it being not part of our natural fauna.

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.
