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.

Hylocereus peruvianus

Hylocereus peruvianus Dragon Fruit variety comes from the genus Hylocereus and the species perivianus. It is a terrestrial plant of the open woodlands in the northern coastal area of Sechura to the Rio Saa valley, Peru. The fruit has a bright pink exterior with green fins that typically weigh 1 to 1.25 pounds. The flesh has a beautiful white pulp and very juicy. The flavor of the fruit is semi-sweet with lots of small crunchy seeds. This variety is easy to set fruit due to it being self-pollinating. Both stems and flowers are like typical Hylocereus. However, stems grew and matured much slower compared to Hylocereus undatus. Spicy Exotics aquired this variety from a grower in California.
