    Hoanglong, do you know the origin of dragon fruit? It's an ephiphyt cactus from South America. I like it as well.

    dragon fruit trees planted or fruits, is the name of some genera of cactus family. Thought that it originated from Central and South America. It is also grown in countries such as China, Taiwan and in Southeast Asia such as Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines. Intestinal type of white shell planting red or pink in Thailand, China, Taiwan, Philippines etc are taking the same from Binh Thuan, Vietnam and current (2005) only in the early stages.

    All the other flowers were sold throughout the year, also "hoa mai" are only in a Lunar New Year as "hoa mai" only bloom once a year on the occasion of Tet
