i am to place an order for about 10000 dragon fruits (both red and white flesh)
a gentleman from pune is helping me procure the plants.

havent really done any market research for retailing, but i am sure i’ll have it in place before my plants start fruiting (which is about 2 yrs after plantation)

love the fruit and i am sure it will do well in the local market.
will know more when things happen for real.
