Red Jiana Dragon Fruit variety comes from the genus Hylocereus and the species polyrhizus. This variety is one of the heaviest fruit producers once it is mature. The fruit typically weighs three-quarters to one pound. The fruit is semi-sweet and good to eat, but its greatest potential is as a juicing variety. The crimson red lycopene enriched juice could compliment a multitude of tropical drinks, smoothies, or culinary creations. Like most red flesh varieties, the fruit is also very high in antioxidants. Stems are tender and three-sided with medium sized spines. The stems also have an olive color with new growth having hits of purple. Red Jiana variety was acquired from a tropical nursery in California.
