Fast growing, perennial, vine-like cacti with stem sections that form aerial roots which adhere to the surface upon which they grow or climb. The stem may reach about 6.1 m long. Hylocereus species have no true leaves, photosynthesis occurs in the green stems. Hylocereus blooms only at night. The strongly perfumed flowers are approx. 22-30 cm long and funnel shaped.
Both the skin and flesh are deep magenta-red. The seeds are small, black, and embedded throughout the flesh. The texture of the fruit is similar to kiwifruit because of its black, crunchy seeds. The flesh is mildly sweet and low in calories. Eaten raw, the fruit may also be converted into juice or wine or used to flavour other beverages. The seeds may be crushed and eaten, and are highly nutritious, but they are indigestible unless chewed.
