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.

Maui Dragon

Maui Dragon is a Dragon Fruit variety from the genus Hylocereus and the species undatus. It was collected on the east shore of Maui Hawaii (click here to see a picture of where this variety was collected). The plant is fast to adapt and an aggressive grower, growing at least 6 feet per year. Flowers on this variety typically start in June like most Hylocereus undatus. The fruit is beautiful, almost fake looking with bright pink skin and deep green fins. In 2017 this variety fruited for the first time at Spicy Exotics. During this time it produced over 12 fruit its first fruiting cycle. Fruits ranged from 1 to 1.5 pounds. The fruit was not only visually appealing, but they had a nice refreshing taste too. These fruits tested with a brix rating ranging from 13 to 14, so not much sweetness when compared to other varieties. Instead, it was quite tangy and even better chilled. This variety was acquired from a grower in Hawaii.
