Dragon Fruit – Queen of the Night

Follow Amie\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\

There is a uniqueness to this gorgeous tropical fruit, and that is it lives only one night. First, the cactus produces a beautiful pink or yellow flower. Sometimes called “moonflower” or “Queen of the night,” the plant blooms from evening to midnight, only to wither in strong sunlight. During the night, the pungent flowers are pollinated by moths and bats. Although the flower dies, the cactus bears dragon fruit (pitaya) about six times every year.
