Purple Haze Dragon Fruits are so unusual looking that many people think they look like alien eggs, or some fruit from another planet. The 3 to 4-inch fruits are oval and their skins produce alternating petals called fins. They may look otherworldly, but really they are an exotic fruit that grows on a climbing cactus. The Purple Haze Dragon Fruit variety has bright pink skin, green fins, and fluorescent purple or deep pink flesh that tastes like a kiwi mixed with a grape. The fruits can be grown in the ground in USDA Zones 9 to 11, or in pots in Zones 4 to 11.
Purple Haze Dragon Fruit Trees are easy to grow and thrive in hot, dry climates. They like full sun and fast-draining soil. They are resistant to pests, disease, and foragers. All you need is a sunny spot and a pole for the succulent vine to crawl upon and you will soon be harvesting the most delicious conversation piece in your edible landscape garden.
