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.

Capistrano Valley

Capistrano Valley Dragon Fruit variety comes from the genus Hylocereus undatus and Hylocereus guatemalensis hybrid. The Hylocereus guatemalensis hybrid used was the Delight variety.
The fruit has a bright pink exterior with green fins. Our pictures provided do not show this due to picking the fruit a few days later than should. The flesh is a grayish-white with lots of small crunchy seeds. Fruit weigh between three quarter to one and a half pounds. From a flavor description its more similar to undatus than to the Delight variety. We do find Capistrano Valley to be better than most undatus species.

The flowers of the Capistrano Valley variety are self-fertile. For the first flower cycle, Spicy Exotics hand-pollinated and we suggest this for all types to ensure fruit. This variety is also a robust grower with meaty three-sided stems that are bright green. Small to medium spins occur along the rib line of each stem. Growth, flowers, and fruit are similar to most Hylocereus undatus. Spicy Exotics collected this variety from a tropical grower in California.
