At Dragon Alley’s Nursery we are growing both La Verne Red and Donovan’s Lavern and we are looking forward to report back to you on the difference between the varieties if any.

Please note:

We are currently not selling dragon fruit cuttings. Our plants are still young, and we are waiting on them to start producing.

Selling fruit plants true to type is our top priority. Once our plants mature and we can verify the fruit we will notify all those who subscribed.
