    Wow thanks Ben, I was surprised when received the package way much bigger than I expected. The cutting are very healthy and mature, and they are very big (as big as my arm). I also received the extra gift cutting. Will see how that little will do comparing to the two big brothers. :) R/ Hai Tran

    Thanks Ben for giving an extra surprise cut. My cutting came in a big box which very surprised to me. Most of the dragon fruit cutting I ordered came in a little box. It even become more surprise when I open it up. The length of the cutting a little longer than as describbed and diameter and size of the are bigger than my arm. Looking forward to it next year. Will buy from this seller again if he has things I that I am searching for. Thanks Ben, R/ Hai Tran
