Oh bliss. It's dragonfruit time. This one still has the flower attached. Update! Ate half for morning tea today and it was the best! dragonfruit I've eaten ever. So sweet and tasty.

All look mouthwatering, can't wait until mine grow enough to fruit.
I just use secateurs to remove them. One snip.
They look delicious Joseph :) Nothing like fresh fruit straight out of your own garden.
Thank you Susanne and Joseph - will give twisting a go!
Elaine, I twisted them off the vines, they came off quite easily.
Here are the two pink dragonfruit from before. They ripened very quickly. But yours still win the crown for intensity of colour and impressive spikes, Lissa!
I am eating one as I type. It's maybe a little bit sweeter than the ones sold at Inala. I saw pink dragonfruit at our local Woolies this arvo, $13.95 per kg!!
Good Joseph :)
It's taken 3.5 weeks from bloom to this. Seems very quick. I made a note in the diary after hand pollinating a red one last night, will see how long it takes to ripen.
We had a few red ones unfortunately most were damaged by animals at night. In future we will cover the fruit with nets.
The white-fleshed take longer to ripen than the red. Check for yielding when pressed and keep observing. This year I've noted the pollination date on the stems so am waiting to see how it works out. How do you remove the fruit? I've managed to damage the stems in the process, there must be a simpler way.
