    Hylocereus guatemalensis. American Beauty Red Dragon Fruit Attractive vining fleshy stemmed cactus with multiple stems reaching up to 20 feet. It can withstand short periods of frost but more than that can damage or kill it. It grows in a wide variety of soils but does best in fertile soils. Because it is a cactus it is very drought resistant. Does very well in drier climates. Magnificent flowers are night blooming. Can have up to 4-6 fruiting cycles annually.

    Starter plants are shipped in 3" deep pots. We try to keep all of our plants between 3-8" in height with excellent root systems.
