Told2b, correct, it is Francis Meilland. It won the 2013 AARS award as well as some other international awards.
Dragon fruit is sweet, the seeds are nutty. I like the yellow dragon fruit, it was the sweetest so far. The flesh is juicy but a little gelatinous, not like okra, more like Jello in texture. Dragon fruit are like avocados, you pick them firm and wait until they soften a bit to eat them. They are better chilled. If you are going to grow a fruit, it is better to grow an expensive one , in the right climate, rather than a cheap one. The cheap one you can get from the store. I have to keep chopping my dragon fruit because it likes to roam and climb. Dragon fruit and vanda are the only two things that don't mind a hot tile wall. Mine should flower more, but it doesn't. If I only get one flower, it won't make any fruit since it is not self pollinating. I do have to get to it in time since, I don't have enough moths to do the pollination naturally and I have come out many times just having missed the flowers I have been waiting for.

Pandan can grow taller than two feet, mine have gotten to be 4 feet tall, but it suckers a lot, so it grows laterally more than vertically. It can grow in a very large pot, but it does better in the ground.
Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.
