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.

Natural Mystic

Natural Mystic Dragon Fruit is a hybrid variety that comes from Hylocereus polyrhizus and Hylocereus undatus. This variety was introduced to Florida by import from Thailand where it is grown small scale commercially in Homestead. It is a consistent producer of red-fleshed fruit that typically weighs 1 pound. The fruit is semi-sweet with an average brix rating of 15. It is excellent eaten fresh but even better chilled. I particularly like it chilled and cubed on top of salad. You can check out our Pinterest salad recipe page for other great uses. This variety does not need hand pollination or cross-pollination to set fruit. Once mature it is a heavy producer of flower buds. To get even larger Dragon Fruit I would recommend hand pollination and bud thinning. When flowers appear the pollen it is a great choice for other varieties that do not set fruit on their own. Mature stems have meaty flesh that is three sided and medium-sized spins. In 2016 this variety produced one of the largest fruit I have ever seen. The fruit weighed over 2 pounds and had a brix rating of 19 with an amazing watermelon flavor. This variety was acquired from a grower in Louisiana.
