Discovering fortunes of the dragon fruit

What you need to know:

  • Unlike other cactuses, dragon fruit requires water and manure, but water logging and over-watering can cause root rot, therefore it’s advisable to just water like vegetables
  • The plant has a life span of between 20-30 years, so a strong and durable pole is required.

Located in Malaa along Kangundo Road some 40 kilometers from Nairobi is a farm that attracts everyone’s eyes.
