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.

Thomson G2

Thomson G2 Dragon Fruit or Thomson Guatemalan – 2  Dragon Fruit variety comes from the genus Hylocereus and the species guatemalensis. This variety is a clone that was originally collected by Paul Thomson. This plant is self-sterile so it needs a pollinator. It produces a sweet and delicious large 1.0 to 2.0-pound fruit. Stems are strong but will sunburn, though rarely sustain permanent damage. Like many of the Guatemalan varieties blooms early and produces plenty of fruit well into the late season. While its lack of sun tolerance and self-sterile properties are negative, the large, sweet, attractive fruit make it worth the trouble. To back this up, the fruit has an average brix rating of 18 with some of the larger fruit having a 20 rating. This variety was acquired from a grower in California.
