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.

Mister Woo

Mister Woo Dragon Fruit variety comes from the genus Hylocereus and an unknown species. Internet research mentioned this variety was given to a grower then the grower labeled it the common name after the donor, Mr. Woo. Flowers are large that resemble typical Hylocereus flowers. Flower bud to night blooming flower is an ordinary 30 days then another 30 days to harvest in South Louisiana. The fruits average size is a pound with a pink/red skin with green fins. One exciting aspect of this variety is the medium-sized thorns. At first look, all aspects of this variety would appear that the fruit would have red flesh, but to our surprise, it’s a firm, deep purple flesh. The fruit is good quality with an average Brix score of 17. After the first taste, we expected a rating between 18 and 19.

Our experience with Mr. Woo gave the first fruit with a rating of 16 Brix. It was harvested a little early, and I’m sure if it was left on the vine a little longer, the brix would increase. The flesh was very firm, grape-like tangy, and a mild sweetness. We were pleasantly surprised! Spicy Exotics acquired this species of Mister Woo from a tropical grower in California.
