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.

Frankies Red

Frankies Red Dragon Fruit is a hybrid variety that comes from Selenicereus megalanthus and Hylocereus polyrhizus. Research collected has stated that this variety of Selenicereus megalanthus occurred in wild nature. The fruit of is very similar in shape and size when compared to a Yellow Dragon fruit. When the fruit emerges it turns from a green to yellow then orange. The color of the flesh when ready to eat is red with white highlights in the center of the fruit. The fruit also has an amazing sweetness with an average brix rating of 21. The stems of the plant are small and grow in long segments. They are dark green in color, three-sided, and have small thick spins. This variety is from Hawaii and is self-pollinating making easy for the fruit to set. Spicy Exotics acquired two plants of this variety from two different tropical nurseries that are both in California

    Some of the best fruit Dragon Fruit has to offer!

  2. Diana M Traylor

    Just as I expected, great “BIG”, “HEALTHY” cuttings. I always know that I will receive the best that I can buy and I can make my purchases with 100% confidence. Now I just have to wait for the rewards of the delicious fruit to come.

    The Frankie’s Red “cutting” I ordered arrived in great condition and one turned out to be a rooted plant with two branches. The order was the equivalent of three cuttings. Thank you so much for the extras. I’ve potted them up and am looking forward to growing them.
