The Thomson is a large dragon fruit. Like all the dragons, the plant prefers a bit of shade on the ground. The fruit has white flesh and has an aromatic sweet taste. Thomson gives heavy fruit and can reach a weight of 750 to 900 grams. The plant is self-pollinating, but to get a lot of fruit it is advisable to give the plant a helping hand and to pollinate it by hand.
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.
