Spicy Exotics Dragon Fruit ratings table:

Flavor – When testing for sweetness of the Dragon Fruit a device called a refractometer is used. It uses the brix scale of sweetness. This scale ranges from 0 to 32. The higher the number the sweeter the fruit. In addition to sweetness any unique attributes such as size and flavor are also considered when giving this rating.
Fruit Production – For the rating we look at how many fruits are produced from a single plant. Also, how easy or difficult it is to grow is considered. For example, a variety that is self-fertile will get a higher rating than an non self-fertile variety.
Growing – This is a rating of the overall hardiness of the plant. In addition to this, we also look at how quickly the plant adapts from cuttings and how long it will take before producing the first fruit.

Bruni Dragon Fruit is a hybrid variety that comes from Hylocereus stenopterus and Hylocereus undatus. It is one of three hybrids created by German hybridizer Eckhard Meier. The other two varieties are Connie Mayer and Kathie Van Arum. These are also offered on our online store. The flower is a medium-sized bloom with inner petals being purple shading to light pink edges and white tips. The flower bud is equally impressive as the flower. In Louisiana, the flower opens at dusk and closes at sunrise. When compared to other varieties this is much earlier. The growth is tinder large three-sided that is typical of Hylocereus. Spines are often a single thorn similar to the Connie Mayer variety. Fruits are small and plentiful often weighing .25 to .75 pounds. The green skin when ripe has a transparent pink color with lemon-lime green fins and having a white flesh. The longer the fruit is on the vine the sweeter it gets. Testing results in 2016 had a Brix rating as high as 21.3. This variety was acquired from a tropical nursery in California.

    Of all the money that I have spent over the years for plants (and believe me, I am old) this is truly a remarkable purchase that I have made. I would call it – “the best of the best”. Thank you!
