Which variety is that, Tony? Did you save pollen? Many people put the entire anthers in a jar to refrigerate but I plan to experiment and try to shake or scrape off pollen and dry it and freeze it for longer term storage.

This is the red flesh variety. I did not save pollen,probably should.I've got 30 buds on this one plant I'll collect pollen tonight.

Here's an animated GIF made up of 17 photos I took from 6:32pm to 10:06pm last night of my 'Condor' pitaya

Beautiful, it will be nice when we see blooms on our seedlings. Next year or so maybe.

Good to finally meet you today, Tony!

Besides the cutting I got from Leo I got Cebra from a grower in Fallbrook and expect to get another from Quang tomorrow which I think will put me up to about 28 varieties of DF. Kinda crazy? I'll probably pick up some others at the festival tomorrow. Had dinner with Edgar and his wife Pat as well as Ramiro and some of the other UC folks tonight. Fortunately, I napped for almost 3 hours this afternoon after getting to my hotel after driving all last night. I put on about 600 miles and I'm ready to crash. Yeah, my camera did get left home but don't know that I have other things I need to photograph.

Growers in Fallbrook use 15% shade cloth on G2 which sunburns easily but even that cuts way back on production. I think I'll send them some PurShade to try out on some of their full-sun plants to see if that reduces production still.

Nice meeting you Harvey.

After seeing the Leo is growing his Pitaya,I know I'll be adding a few more varieties. No need for large pots or giant trellises . You may not get lots of fruit but growing so many different ones will be fun
