Growing local

An update of an update ...

And in response to Ania's photo ...

Taken just now:

A range of developing fruit from a couple of days ago pollination to some weeks ago:

Pollinated only a few days ago - these fruit are hard, too hard to squeeze:

This one is yellowing and I don't expect it to develop:

This one just withered - pic taken a few days ago - I've since pulled it off and cut it across - it was just spongy and going brown inside:

And indeed Dragon Fruit do get sunburned not that it's stopped the plant from flowering. The Dragon Fruit in another spot (north-south axis) in the same west-facing front yard are not sunburned at all. The sunburn happened on an east-west axis (don't know why that's significant, but the differences couldn't be greater):
