Oaxacan White is a rare and understudied variety of dragon fruit. In this article we will tell you what is known about it.


The state of Oaxaca in Mexico is the origin of the white dragon fruit. The growth pattern of H.undatus is typical. Because this plant does not produce its own pollen, it must be pollinated by another species in order to produce fruit.

Self-pollinating: No
Skin color: Bright red
Flesh color: White
Weather tolerance:4 out of 5
Fruit production:4 out of 5
Flavor: 5 out of 5
Growing:3 out of 5

The Hylocereus genus, of which the undatus species is a part, is the source of the Oaxaca variety of the Pitaya. The vivid pink skin of the 1 to 1.5-pound fruits contrasts with the white flesh on the inside of the fruit. This fruit definitely sticks out from the crowd. The fruit has an average brix score of 15, and it has a pleasant acidity that lingers after eating it.

It takes about 35 days from the time the flower is pollinated until the fruit is ready for harvest. This type of plant grows quite well, but does not have the ability to self-pollinate. So if you are a beginner, you should give preference to growing other varieties of dragonfruit.


This variety of pitahaya comes from the Mexican state of Oaxaca. The inside of the fruit is white, and the outside is a pinkish red. They are attractive and have bracts that are rather lengthy. Fruit oval, large, weighing 450-650 grams, with a skin that is pinkish red and extremely thin, very hard, white flesh, and a great number of little black seeds.

Is Oaxacan White dragon fruit self-pollinating?
No. It cannot use its own pollen to produce fruit.
How can you tell if a dragon fruit is self pollinated?
There are a few indicators that can be used to determine whether or not a dragon fruit is self-pollinated. Taking a peek at the flowers is one option. When the flowers are successfully pollinated, a pollination tube will form that extends from the stigma to the ovary of the flower. Cutting open the fruit is yet another method that can be used. It is possible for the dragonfruit to pollinate itself if the seeds are situated in the middle of the pitaya.
