Description:
The yellow pitaha or yellow dragonfruit is a delicious sweet fruit with a yellow peel and white pulp. It is actually an epifytic cactus, which means the plant grows and climbs in tree branches with its long stems. With their air roots they extract nutrients and water, not needing soil. The white flowers can grow up to 35cm in nature and are some of the largest flowers of all cacti. They are self-pollinating and each flower can produce a prickly fruit. To eat these fruits it is best to cut them in half and use a spoon to eat the pulp. The plant prefers a sunny spot and a well draining soil. Besides that, it is an easy plant for indoors.
There used to be a lot of unclarity about the right species name, but after genetic research it has become clear that this is a natural crossing between the Hylocereus costaricensis and Selenicereus inermis. The yellow pitahaya can be seen as its own species within the Hylocereus-genus. Which is teh same as the well known red pitahaya.
