brilliant pink, brilliant green - dragonfruit

The plan this morning was to heavily trim back the dragon fruit plant that we have growing. To date it hasn't fruited much and of course we haven't maintained the pruning of it so it's a bit out of control. So we were planning on pruning it right back this morning and shifting it to a different location within the garden - a spot with more sun. Well once wonderful husband got up on the ladder to reach the top section of the plant we discovered several fruits. So the heavy pruning became a light trim.
Not only are these tropical fruits nice to eat, the colors of this variety are quite striking.
We'll look at heavy pruning once it's finished fruiting
