This kind of fruit weighs about a pound and has green fins and a red skin. It took 30 days from the flower to the fruit. The flesh is white all over and has a firm feel.
Undatus also has flowers, which can reproduce on their own. From July to October, this type of dragonfruit is thought to be a universal pollinator because its pollen can be spread to almost any other type of Dragon Fruit. When the flowers are fully open a few hours after sunset, they are at their biggest. They close a couple of hours after sunrise.
We got a cutting of White King from a grower in Texas, but we’re not sure if it’s White King Hollywood or Vietnamese King White, or if they’re the same thing. We have asked a lot of collectors what the differences are between the two, but no one seems to know.
Not much is known about the differences between the different kinds of Vietnamese. We can’t wait to grow this variety and let you know what else we learned about it.
