An Overview of Yellow Dragon fruit
Selenicereus megalanthus, also known as Hylocereus megalanthus, is a species of cactus of the genus Selenicereus native to northern South America where, along with its fruit, it goes by the name pitahaya. This dragon fruit is so popular because it has yellow skin and white pulp with black seeds. Though dragon fruit may look exotic and are rare in many regions, its taste and flavour are similar to other fruits, as they are slightly sweet and sour like kiwis and pears.

How to Care And Sow Yellow Dragon fruit Seeds
You can grow your dragon fruit cactus with Yellow Pitaya by planting the seeds. The package contains 15 seeds of Yellow Dragon Fruit. You should know, though, that if you grow a dragon fruit plant from seed, it may take several years to bear fruit. It is best to grow dragon fruit in a sunny area of your garden or on a sunny windowsill with at least six hours of direct sunlight every day. The soil should be well-draining and rich in organic matter. Spread the seeds evenly over the soil surface, then cover them with soil. It is not necessary to bury seeds deeply if water barely covers them.
Almost all varieties of Dragon fruit need to be watered regularly. By watering or misting the soil bed continuously, you will ensure it is evenly moist. If your soil is prone to drying out, you can cover the soil bed with plastic wrap until the seeds germinate. Thinned out plants grow best. If you are growing them indoors, put them into larger pots. Cacti climb upwards. Upon reaching 35 cm in height, they will need support. Install a trellis or stake so that your plant can grow. You can also place the plant in a tub outside in the summer.
