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.

Halleys Comet

Halleys Comet Dragon Fruit is a hybrid variety that comes from Hylocereus undatus and Hylocereus guatemalensis. Fruits have a pink outside with green abbreviated fins and purple flesh inside that typically weigh 1.0 to 2.0 pounds. The flesh is sweet with an average brix of 16. The flower blooms are over 13 inches across and it blooms all summer. This variety is a strong but less aggressive grower and can tolerate full sun with minimal sun burn. My testing results have proven that Halleys Comet does set fruit on its own however, I would recommend pollen from any Hylocereus polyrhizus for near perfect results. This variety was acquired from a tropical nursery in Louisiana.

Weight 1.5 lbs
