Cereus peruvianus

Not only does this cactus make lovely flowers at night, they sometimes form a delicious fruit. This one plant in my back yard is setting a fair crop. The one that Jim and his son and I ate Wednesday was okay but another week on the plant it would have been sweeter and more flavorful.

  1. I have one growing in our school greenhouse. It blooms but the flowers always aborts and never sets fruit. Any suggestions on how to get it to fruit?
