  Background and Objective: Dragon fruit is a popular cultivated fruit in Indonesia because of its nutritional value. Recently, farmers have begun to cultivate coloured varieties of dragon fruit such as yellow (Hylocereus megalanthus), red (H. polyrhizus), orange and black (H. Hybrid). However, the morphological characters of these varieties are yet to be elucidated. The objective of this study was to evaluate the morphological characters of four coloured dragon fruit varieties. Materials and Methods: Four dragon fruit genotypes (Hylocereus megalanthus, H. polyrhizus and two H. Hybrid) were cultivated in Pangandaran regency of Indonesia with an altitude of 10 m above sea level with the minimum and maximum temperature of 24 and 37°C, respectively. The experiment was conducted from November, 2017 to September, 2018. About 75 individual plants for each genotype were cultivated. Parameters related to plant growth such as growth rate, stem height, number of shoot and also plant phenotype were recorded during plant growth and development. Results: The result showed that the four dragon fruit genotypes each have different characterizations. The red variety has the best growth condition, while the yellow variety exhibited the lowest growth rate. Conclusion: This study concluded that the red variety is more suitable and adaptable to be cultivated in Pangandaran.
