What is the Difference between the normal commercial verities and the USA Florida Varieties?
The Normal:This is the Varieties that we are currently buying in the shops.
The USA Florida: These Fruits have been cross-pollinated to create a different taste and the fruit look different just a little bit, these varieties are extremely rare. That is the reason they are so expensive
And those that we do not cultivate yet, we import from USA. And with the import costs and permits and plant material it is quite expensive.
All our dragon Fruit farmers are automatically part of our FREE, dragon Fruit Forum.
Allow me one minute, to explain the DRAGON FRUIT SA Forum: This is a platform were dragon fruit farmers share free advice, on how they manage their farms and fertilizing programs and any need to know information regarding outstanding success in the Business. South-Africa is a diverse country with beautiful farms and farming community’s
