Planting Dragon Fruit
Our resident farmers Kuya Nowie and Reniel planted 50 dragon fruit cuttings today at the AGREA Model Farm in Cawit, Marinduque. Our farmers are at their happiest learning the technology of planting this high-value crop.
This is upcycling at work: they used planting materials such as driftwood as climbing posts and vermicast as fertilizer - all coming from and produced in the farm!
Considered a cactus plant, the dragon fruit's vibrant green and reddish-pink hues indicate that the fruit is full of nutrients, while the creamy white flesh spotted with black seeds gives way to many rich and natural properties.
