Q.Can You Grow A Dragon Fruit Plant From A Cutting From A Seedling And Expect Fruit Sooner?

Zone Columbia MO | Anonymous added on July 13, 2023 | Answered

I am on vacation with my family and we got these dragon fruits from the local farmers market. I am wanting to grow some at home so I’ve collected seeds. I’ve read that it takes up to 7 years to expect fruit from a seedling dragon fruit whereas from a cutting you can expect fruit in a couple years. I wanted to find out if I cut a cutting of my new seedling could I expect fruit sooner or does it have to be from a plant that has produced fruit before. Thank you.
