It could be an asset to backyard growers as well as entrepreneurs of medium and large scale plantations. The marketability of Dragon Fruit in the locality is expected to be very high because of limited number of commercial producers of the product.

Dragon Fruit farming is native to tropical countries. It is one of the fastest growing vine, which needs vertical support to grow. It can live upto 20 years with extensive care, which means selection of rings and poles is important. Dragon Fruit is an agriculture based product. The cultivation technology is as almost same like we use in cultivating other domestic crops. There is no much difference, just that dragon fruits are from the cactus family, and they need more water than other domestic crops.

There is a lot of demand for Dragon fruit in India. As consumers are getting more and more aware about this fruit; the demand is increasing steadily. The fact that this fruit has health benefits as well is also a factor. A very few farmers in the Sates of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka & Tamil Nadu have taken up Dragon Fruit cultivation in India. The total All India area of Dragon Fruit cultivation maybe less than 100 acres. The awareness and demand for this fruit is huge in India mainly for its taste, nutritional and medicinal properties. This fruit is packed with excellent health benefits, has good demand in local as well as international market. Hence one can get good returns in dragon fruit cultivation.

India is a tropical country with moderate climate all round the year. Dragon fruit adapts well to tropical climates. There is a huge demand for dragon fruit in the market. It is used by the juice vendors near IT companies. So if you start cultivating you can earn a good amount by supplying your yield to the juice vendors or if you have a potential to value add the fruit you can make a brand of yours and start selling the dragon fruit juice directly.
