I just bought my Dragon Fruit in a farm recently and am very excited to plant it in the garden but unfortunately I can't plant them there because my in laws will get angry. So I decided to put them on a pot instead I'll work on them this weekend. No one can stop me Do you eat dragon fruits? It's good for our body and it's somewhat herbal too as what other people say.

@renicemae I do not know, Janice. My mom and dad buy it. I never asked for it. But when we were in Vietname it costs around 100 Dong or Php 200.

@mlgen1037 I see. I think it's more expensive in Vietnam. In my place it ranges from 50 to 200 plus pesos depending on its weight.

I like it too and it's good in our health. Aside from the fruit, there are also jams and juices sold in the market but haven't tried it yet. Have you?

I had tried to eat some. However, it is quite expensive in my place. If I have the chance, I will have one.

Yes it is expensive in our place,. That is one of the reasons why I wanted to grow some in my garden (though I dont have one yet that's why I'm planting it on a pot for now). It's a good business. If only I have a land I can call my own.

@renicemae Is this fruit can be planted in a cold place? If it is, then I will have them in the backyard. I agree it is a good business.

@Shavkat It's better planting it in a place where the sunlight is readily available. It's still a cactus so it preferes hot places. But I think it will still grow in a cold place as long as you take care of it.

Yes we have. My sister took my mom to a Dragon Fruit farm last year and they brought home 3 kinds of cuttings. We place ours in a big pot, too. Now the leaves are all branching out. Can't wait for them to bear fruits.

Wow that sounds exciting. How many cuttings did you plant in a pot?

@renicemae My mom did 1 cutting per pot. We did not want to get them crowded. They grow fast.

@Anne88 I see. My seller told me that 3 to 4 cuttings can be put in a pole but since I'll be planting it in a pot for now, then I guess I'll do it like yours.

I had a dragon fruit for the first time a while ago but I found it had no real taste. I was very dear in my country so I will stick to eating grapes and mango's rather

I see. There are a lot of varieties when it comes to mangoes. It's our national fruit by the way

In Miami there are lots of fruit trees. So many really enjoy the mangoes. Great!

Glad you figured out that putting the dragon fruit in a pot will work for you. I have never eaten dragon fruit.

Some people doesn't like its taste though but I like it. And it's the first plant that I really wanted to grow. I hope you could try it soon
