How to Grow Pitaya from Our Smoothie Packs

8 Comments

That's right! You can grow your very own Pitaya farm straight from our smoothie packs. You might be wondering how that is even possible...? Well, one of the benefits of producing 100%, USDA Organic Pitaya smoothie packs is all the seeds they contain. 

Each Pitaya smoothie pack contains roughly 300 seeds just waiting to be planted.

So follow along below and learn how to grow your very own Pitaya superfruit cactus!

 

What you'll need for this step by step process:

  • 1 Pitaya Plus Pack
  • 1 Seed Starter Kit
  • Pots (Amount depends on how many you plant)
  • Soil for Pots (Amount will vary)
  • Scissors
  • Spoon
  • Water
Leave a single Pitaya Plus pack outside of the freezer until completely thawed.

 

With a loose grip, hold the pack upright and cut off one of the top corners. Then pour entire pack into a small container.

 

With a spoon, scoop out as many Pitaya seeds as you'd like and fill in each germination pod. We suggest 10 seeds per pod:)

 

Once all the pods are full of Pitaya seeds, cover the pods with the humidity dome. The humidity dome holds warm air and moisture to ensure productive growth of the seeds. Having a clear lid also gives the seeds the benefit of sunlight.

 

Follow the instructions from your seed starter kit on how much and how often to water your pods. Different kits have different requirements:)

 

After 1-2 weeks you should start seeing your Pitaya growing in each pod.

 

Once your Pitaya grow big enough, you'll want to move them into bigger pots with new soil.

 

Follow the instructions on how much and how often to water your Pitaya in the new soil. Again, different brand soils have different requirements:)

 

Pitaya-Cactus-All
After a few more weeks and months... you'll end up with your very own Pitaya farm:)

 

 

We hope you liked this fun project. Let us know your thoughts on the story or if you've grown Pitaya before:)
Thank you all for the support and happy gardening!

Smoothie is my most favorite meal of the day. And to have the best meal, I’m using the best blender to blend all of my favorite fruits and veggies in one delicious drink. My personal favorite is the Ninja Mega Kitchen System. It is the top of the line, fully loaded blender with many attachments to make cooking and blending easy. What’s more is that it is super easy to clean up, has a sturdy construction, sharp blades and to top it all, very safe to use! It’s definitely worth the price. Love it.

So pleased about growing Pitaya Dragonfruit.

I never heard of a raw fresh whole Dragonfruit product being sold, merely the puffed dehydrated chips in Asian markets which as far as nutritional benefits and flavor go are a joke.

I first found Pitaya on clearance at Safeway next to Amazona Acai Palm fruit. I know from studying the many common factors of plant foods that red colors in foods signifies that generally the food contains more nutritional benfits and purple is simply a condensed deeper red.

Seriously, Pitaya changed my life because I felt the results immeadiately and so starting researching its benfits. Dragonfruit is the most Anti-inflammatory, fiber filled, superfood out there and although purple, and containing fiber like Acai, it has totally differen’t benefits which complements Acai superfood; giving you a kind of full spectrum double superfood benefit.

I wish Safeway would think of the smart customer who cares about themselves and continue selling Pitaya…it should be a required health food law.

Hey Mildred,

At this time we are only able to ship Pitaya within the continental US. We are working hard to expand and will let you know when we can ship to Puerto Rico. Thank you so much for your support and hope you get to try some of our Pitaya soon:)
