Zamorano – Dragon fruit Hylocereus Polyrhizus X

Description:

A Dark red medium-sized fruit
Can be Self-pollinating but does best with x pollination 
A rounder-shaped fruit
Beautiful flower yellow to white 
This was sourced from Sunshine Coast Commercial Grower.
Originated in Honduras where it was collected from a US agriculture university, and this is where it received its name.
We were not the biggest fan of this fruit until this year (2024) in the 3rd growing season the fruit was a lot bigger and had a much better flavour. Having the diverse range of dragon fruit plants around it definitely helped with x plantation. There is a Thi commercial white planted across from this plant in the next row, I suspect they were cross-pollinated together to give us an improved fruit than we have had in the past. 

Taste:
Has a mild sweet flavour.
The flavour of this dragon fruit could be compared to a red plum with a hint of blood orange.
