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.

Paisley Dragon Fruit variety Dragon Fruit is a hybrid variety that comes from Hylocereus guatemalensis and Hylocereus undatus. This variety produces half pound to one pound fruit with an average brix rating of 16. The external appearance of the fruit is red skin with green fins. The inner flesh is deep purple with slightly lighter purple tones near the peel. Several fruits were tested and the brix range was from 15 to 19 with 15 coming from the smallest fruit while 19 came from the largest fruit. The flowers are plentiful and fragrant however they are self-sterile, meaning they need a pollinator to set fruit. Paisley is a very vigorous grower that can have segments up to 5 feet in length. Stems resemble typical Hylocereus guatemalensis growth with a heart-shaped rib and small spines. This hybrid variety was collected from a tropical grower in California.
