My dragon fruit finally fruited!!!

I am so shock as my dragon fruit finally fruited for me here in PA! I have this plant for 5 years and this year it fruited. It was funny because I told myself I will give it a severe pruning if it doesn't fruit this year since it was a pain to drag it in and out of the basement.

I hand pollinated the flowers every year at around 5 am but this year I pollinated them at 6 or 7 am. I guess I didn't do it right before with the time? I will from now on pollinated the flower at 7 am. I think this dragon fruit is the magenta color. I could not wait for it to mature so I can taste it. YAY!!!!!!!
