The dragon fruits are grown in Shanshang District, Tainan City. The planter Mr. Zhi-Jie Wang ended his career in waste treatment because of the financial crisis and returned to his native land to take over the farm passed down from the ancestors. The farm is on an upland with good drainage system and lower risk of being contaminated by the neighboring farm. Mr. Zhi-Jie Wang expanded the farm to 8 hectares and widen the space between the plants for the machine’s convenience to work on the farm. Moreover, he also installed automatic plant sprinklers, applies vegetative cultivation, uses bagging to decrease the number of pests, and stores the fruits in refrigerators to maintain the freshness and the quality. In addition, he buy bagasses from Taisugar company to be fertilizer, so the dragon fruits have strong sweet flavor with a little sugar cane aroma.
