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.

Hana

Hana Dragon Fruit variety comes from the genus Hylocereus and from the species monacanthus. This variety was collected on the road to Hana on the island of Maui, Hawaii. The stems of this variety differ from other Hylocereus being thinner with long thorns. This variety is also a super fast grower, growing over 6 feet per year. From cutting to fruit took 14 months, making it the fastest variety to fruit at Spicy Exotics in under 2 years.

Flowers from this variety are unique with a typical white fading to a soft pink base. See our pictures on this page for a detailed view. When blooming during nighttime a sweet fragrance fills the air.  The fruit is small weighing about a pound. An unexpected surprise was the taste of the fruit. It is similar to a sweet melon with a floral or rosy aftertaste. The average Brix rating of the fruit is 17.5.

These three characteristics (stem, flower, and fruit taste) make this variety stand out from other Hylocereus undatus. This variety is self-fertile and a great source of pollen for pollinating other varieties. We collected this variety from a grower in Hawaii.
