Has anyone grown this type of dragon fruit Hylocereus bronxensis before and can offer some information about this plant? I saw some rooted cuttings online for sale for only $8.99 and I'm considering getting it. The only information I found about this type is that it is a native to Mexico and is rare and endanger. It is also believed to be related to hylocereus ocamponis.

I've a few question also, if any one can answer
1) Is this variety self fertile?

2)Is it a red/purple/pink/magenta/or white flesh variety?

3)How prolific of a producer is it?

4)Is it sweet or just bland tasting like most white flesh variety?

5)And lastly is it worth it to grow?

Thanks in advance for any information
