    This versatile, fun to grow plant, could be considered a tropical cactus. Several fruit varieties exist but this variety will produce a waxy Yellow skin with a juicy white inside. Also known as pitaya or orchid cactus, this plant is actually a vining succulent, producing exquisite large white blooms that burst forth only at night. Grows perfectly as a container plant as well as in a greenhouse environment. Hardy from zone 9 as an outdoor standard. Growers like to let hang or trellis.
