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.

K1 Dragon Fruit variety comes from the genus Hylocereus and the species undatus. The fruit is self-fertile and is usually self-pollinating. This variety is most known for its very large fruit that typically weighs in at 1.5 to 3 pounds. This makes the fruit one of the largest of the white-fleshed varieties. It can be compared to the Vietnamese White variety in all aspects, just larger. The plant is fast-growing and very strong with minimal yellowing from the sun. In 2017 an interesting transition happened from flower bud to fruit. You can view how new stem growth turned into a flower bud by clicking here. This variety was acquired from a grower in California.

    I got this variety before I knew to much about any of the varieties cuz my name start with a k so I figured the k-1 was a good one to try Out! I am sooo happy that I did get this one because after reading up on the k-1 I’ve found out that it’s one of the biggest fruit producers size wise! It was a slower one to start new growth but like other slow ones once it started up u can’t believe how quick it then grows!!
