Dragon Fruit...

...whilst shopping at the weekend I came across a lovely looking dragon fruit. I am ashamed to say I have never tried one before! It was so beautiful I couldn't resist it!

We ate it last night and whilst looking at all those little black seeds I wondered to myself 'can you grow a dragon fruit?'. Johnny had already googled said fruit and informed me it was a cactus, so this morning I googled it again and discovered that yes indeed you can grow it from those lovely seeds.
So I picked some out from last nights remains and they are now planted and waiting to grow!! How exciting!

Click here to read the very helpful forum discussion in which I discovered the wonders of growing these little plants.
