Dragon fruit growers make good earn in Pyin Oo Lwin. Most of the cultivators are growing the dragon fruits at their farms and beside their houses. The dragon fruits are growing very well in the cold climate of Pyin Oo Lwin.
Dragon fruits are perennial crops. We have to grow them only one year and they will grow for ten years.
“The cost of growing dragon fruits is high but they can make good profit. We have to make concrete pillars to grow the dragon fruits. Most of the people from Pyin Oo Lwin grow the dragon fruits on a manageable scale. The dragon fruit plants are blossoming in four months. We don’t need to water in the raining season.
But, we have to put the natural fertilizer to the dragon fruit plants. We are selling the dragon fruits for Ks 700 per one. But the they are sold for Ks 1,000 in the market,” said U San Win, a dragon fruit grower from Phaung Taw village, ward 15, Pyin Oo Lwin township.
