Originally from Wales, Rachel has lived in Leeds and London and is now settled in Cheshire with her husband, two young children and a very daft dachshund. They leave puncture wounds on flowers, which cause blooms to abort, and can damage maturing strawberry pears by introducing fungi and bacteria.

Beneficial insects such as tachinid flies and parasitic wasps can help keep populations under control, while keeping weeds down around plants can remove additional food and egg-laying habitats for these pests. Dragon trees are slow growing, reaching their mature height after 8-10 years, so they will need repotting only every three to four years. The seeds should then be covered with a fine layer of grit or sand, which will help keep them in contact with the potting mix. These pros recommend creating a trellis by placing a tomato cage in a large resin pot, such as this 20-inch resin wine barrel style planter, available via The Home Depot.During the growing season, water the plants every one to two weeks, allowing the top inch of the soil to dry out between waterings. If you get a lot of rainfall in your area, plant the dragon fruit plant on a hill or mound, so that the water drains away. Give outdoor plants full sun (8+ hours per day) where possible and supplement indoor plants with grow lights. In addition to their nutritional value, Dragon Fruit plants have long been used in traditional medicine.

Mature plants can grow quickly and will respond well to fertilizers while actively growing, flowering, and fruiting. But that’s not all ‘Sin Espinas’ has going for it – this Nicaraguan variety is self-fertile, has gorgeous pink skin, and was one of the top-rated selections for flavor in a blind taste test conducted by the University of California at San Diego Cooperative Extension. For garden-grown trees, natural rainfall is sufficient, and once established, regular watering isn’t necessary.It tastes delicious when eaten chilled and has a flavor that is similar to a cross between a melon and a pear. To keep aphid populations in check, encourage beneficial insects such as parasitic wasps to visit your garden with nearby plantings of some of their favorite food and habitat sources, like dill, cilantro, carrot flowers, and Queen Anne’s lace.
