Poipu wild (also sometimes called Poipu paradise) is a wild variety of dragon fruit with very sweet white flesh. The fruit is very prickly. But unlike most varieties with prickles, it does not fall off as the fruit matures.
This variety is a wild Dragon fruit found on the cliffs of Poipu beach in Hawaii. The fruit shares very similar characteristics like Sugar Dragon and the only difference is the flesh color.
