The Dark Star is a dragon fruit with a pink tint on the outside and surprisingly long “fins”. It is an easy and fast grower. The skin color of this variety is more dark compared to other, hence the name ‘dark’ star. Like all the dragons, the plant prefers a bit of shade on the ground. The taste is sweet tangy and looks a lot like a grape. This dragon gives medium fruit which can reach a weight of 300 to 600 grams. The plant is self-pollinating. Be on time with harvesting, because with a rain shower a ripe fruit can burst. And do not give water 2 days before harvesting the fruit. The taste then becomes less.
