Now the citrus in our garden is right for picking we are enjoying fresh juices every day, hoping to keep away the colds and flu's that are going around.
This one is orange and the last of the dragon fruit.
Orange, pawpaw and banana, yum :)

Neat! I'd heard the cactus only flowered at night ... good to know maybe they are adapting to our conditions and flowering more in the day when the bees are about.
No we haven't hand pollinated, we keep bees and they plus the small native bees always seems to be around them when they are flowering.
Thanks Shirley-Allison ... good news :-) Did you hand pollinate? I'v heard that it can work well.
Hi Elaine, I'm not 100% sure on that but I would say we were eating fruit by eighteen months, they seem to grow very easily here. This year we did have a problem when they flowered and it poured with rain so many of them didn't pollinate.
Superb! How long did your Dragon Fruit take to fruit from the time you planted the rooted cutting?
