The Natural Mystic is a cross between Hylocereus polyrhizus and Hylocereus undatus. The Natural Mystic gives medium to large fruit with dark red to magenta pulp. The taste is very sweet (hardly sour) without rins and the fruit can reach a weight of 450 to 750 grams. The plant is self pollinating. Natural Mystic can give fruit 4 times a year. Of our collection, the Natural Mystic is the first bloomer. Like all the dragons, the plant prefers a bit of shade on the ground. 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.
be aware of the following please: This variety is prone to Rust. Growing the Natural mystic in well-composed material will help though to control the rust. We have several ‘mother dragon fruit plants’ with rust spots, but they produce many sprouts! We experienced that we shipped completely healthy natural mystic cuttings, but they still arrived with some rust spots at their final destination. Be aware of the fact that it can happen, but don’t give up on them!
