I'm looking for Dragon Fruit. Scanned the produce list on Lee Lee's website and dropped in on the Sprouts at 19th Ave & Northern. No dice with both. Anyone know of a place to buy in the Valley?

Try going to LeeLee's. What's on their website isn't always what the have in the store.

I used to see it in Pro's Ranch Market. Well, at least it was something VERY similar to it (and no, I was not looking at Prickly Pears). And I've eaten both varieties. The Mexican variety was a bit more sour than the version I had in Thailand.

Only their website. He didn't go into the store.

Dragon Fruit appears to be very expensive. Melissa's, the company that supplies Sprouts with exotic fruit, sells a 3-pack for $45. I picked up a cherimoya for $4. Cost might be why I am not seeing dragon fruit anywhere. Both Lee Lee's locations are too far just to search for a fruit so it'll have to wait until I'm in either area.

I got one in my Bountiful Baskets about a month ago. I had to ask what it was, and I forgot about it and never ate it.

Not sure about the climate but you may be able to grow them. I know some varieties like the desert and some the more humid tropical climates. I got hooked on them over here in Beijing so I got 3 plants for my father for Christmas off of Ebay for $15. It won't help with the immediate fix but it would be handy for the future.

Dragon fruit will grow here but I live in an apartment so I don't have the space. Turns out I know someone currently growing but his plants are still in the early stages. Takes some time. But he says he'll give me some fruit once it blossoms.

Great to know I was looking at getting some when I got back to the states in the new year but wasn't sure if they would grow in PHX. I know they work well enough in central Florida.
