Ecuadorian Palora Yellow Selenicereus megalanthus Dragon Fruit

Palora Yellow Dragon Fruit is known for being one of the sweetest tasting cultivars of dragon fruit.  It has yellow skin and white interior flesh.  The fruit is oval shaped and heavily thorned; however, the thorns typically fall off as the fruit ripens.  Palora is self fertile and is a slow grower compared to some of the other varieties of dragon fruit.

Palora also known as Ecuadorian dragon fruit is much larger than the other variety known as Colombiana.  It gets its name from the city known as Palorain Ecuador where it is brown commercially.

Growing Palora Yellow Dragon Fruit

Dragon fruit grows best in warm climates.  Temperatures should be above 40 degrees Fahrenheit.  Palora should always be protected form freezing weather.  They can be brown in containers and do best in well draining soil, such as cactus mix.  Also avoid overwatering to prevent root rot.
