Peruvian Apple Cactus PLANT – Cereus repandus syn. Cereus peruvians is magnificent, up to 4m tall, prickly, columnar cactus that finally resembles a tree. It produces red fruit that is sweet, juicy, and rich in vitamin C and beta-carotene. Beautiful big white flowers that open at night are pollinated by small bats and insects that fly at night.

It can also be grown inside as an ornamental.

Planting and growing tips:

  1. Give it a good drink and place it in a semi-shade position out of the wind.
  2. Leave it in the original pot for a few days until it recovers from the journey.
  3. Re-pot or plant into the ground at the latest when the roots start to come out of the bottom holes.
  4. Watering straight after planting is essential! From then on as required.
  5. It doesn’t like to sit in water so a well-drained position is best. All our edibles grow happily and quickly in slightly raised garden beds.
  6. It grows best in full sun and partial shade and in many types of soil, however, the better the soil, the quicker and better the plant will grow.

Additional notes:

  • The price is for one young plant in a small pot. Sending within Australia only, not to NORFOLK ISLAND, NT, SA, TAS, or WA. Pick up by appointment only.
  • Most of our nursery plants grow in partial shade. Introducing them to the sun slowly before replanting them to their permanent position will promote healthy growth.
  • Do your research before trying any new foods. Please also note our disclaimer in the footer of this page.
