We recommend over winter that you give adequate protection and green house this variety in cold locations even in Southern California, without winter protect this variety could get severe stem damage. The growth is almost identical to Selenicereus megalanthus except main stems tend to be slightly wider in growth. This variety loves heat and performs best at 80 to 100 degrees.The fruit of 'Thai Yellow' is very sweet and averages 20-22 brix. Almost completely yellow colored exterior with some rosy red blush on fin tips and can have a rosy pink to red overlay if over ripe. The fruit exterior is almost entirely spineless but it can occasionally have a spine or two by the base where it connects to stems, most likely due to the cross of S.M. leaving some of its characteristics. The flesh is pure white, some small black colored seeds with a 1/2 red-green colored inner rind. Very delicious.
