A climbing, vine-like cactus with aerial roots and succulent, three-sided stems. White flowers open at night and wither by morning. The large fruits are bright pink and the flesh is white or red with many tiny black seeds. Fruit is usually eaten fresh by cutting in half and scooping out the delicately sweet, crisp and refreshing flesh. Can also be used in fruit salads, jellies and drinks. Grow in a sunny position in well drained soil. Protect from very harsh sun and provide support to allow branches to hang down. Harvest fruit approximately 30 days after flowering.
