Yellow Cross 68 dragon fruit dragon fruit

The Yellow Cross 68 variety of dragon fruit has medium-sized fruits with dark red flesh and deep red skin. It has a very large white flower.


Yellow Cross 68 Dragon Fruit is a cross between Selenicereus megalanthus, which is also called Yellow pitaya, and a Hylocereus species whose name is not known. The fruit is oval and has small green fins on its red skin. The inside of the fruit is also deep red.

The average weight of the fruit is between 300 and 400 grams. The fruit has a slight sourness. It comes in 18 and 21 Brix grades. From bud to flower took 21 days, and from flower to fruit took another 21. We thought the Brix rating could have been a little higher if the fruit had stayed on the vine longer.

This sort has night-blooming white flowers with deep red and yellow calyces (outer peddles). It reminds me of the Yellow pitahaya. The thicker stems also look like those of Yellow Dragon. This new growth has three sides and big thorns. When the stems get old, they tend to get a thin layer of wax on them, which makes them better able to handle heat and cold than Yellow Dragon.


Our first Y68 fruit came from a plant that grew in a 5-gallon pot and sent out three flowers. With a little help, three fruits will grow from these three flowers. This type of dragonfruit grows more of itself, and we got flowers and fruit all in the same year.
