Native to Central America and East Asia, the Chinese Dragon Fruit (Hylocereus) refers to a genus of more than 25 species of Fruits producing Cacti, hardy in sunset’s climate Zone 21 to 24. This vigorously growing epiphyte rich-green, succulent foliage that reaches drooping lengths to 20 feet known as the night-blooming cactus, the Dragon fruit produces large white flowers, from mid-summer to mid-fall that bloom in the dark of the late evening and wilt by mid-day. This expedient process results in large, yellow to rose-coloured fruit that are also referred to as Strawberry pears.
We not only cultivate and grow Dragon fruit for consumption of masses but have also developed a Nursery for supplying Saplings to those who are into developing such farms and has the capacity to supply red and white saplings required by any dragon farm on the most competitive price.
DISCOVERING DRAGON FRUIT

The Dragon Fruit – Pitaya – is a fruit indigenous to Central America but is also grown and exported from several Southeast Asian Countries such as Thailand and Vietnam. Obtained from several cactus species, its succulent stem provides the uniquely delicious fruit with moisture in the arid climates where is grows.
Due to cactus feature of the fruit, now Kutch region which has below average monsoon is also found to be a suitable place for growing of Dragon Fruits more so due to climatic conditions of the Region. Use of Drip irrigation methods has further increased the potential for such farms in the Region and in the time to come this may become the crop of the Kutch.
