We decided to pick the pitaya dragon fruit even though it didn’t appear as bright pink as some of the pictures. I did ready it takes about 30 days from flower to ripe. So I think i ended up picking it at 45 days. The tentacles coming off the fruit started having slightly dry looking edges so I decided it was ready. It was a risk as apparently they don’t ripen anymore once picked.
I am so glad I did as it was on a tiny bit of the soft side but still so good and sweet and not mushy!!!
Once I photographed it inside, it actually appeared more pink in the images so maybe that’s why other people’s looked so much brighter than mine!
Going to pick him at under 45 days!
