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.

Zamorano Dragon Fruit is a Hylocereus polyrhizus hybrid that is native to Honduras. It is a variety collected from the agriculture university and this is where it received its name. This variety is a small to medium-sized fruit typically weighing .75 to 1 pound. The skin of the fruit is red with dark green fins. The flesh is crimson red and has a sweet mild flavor. This fruit is great eaten fresh, in jams, as a garnish, or even juiced in drinks. Check out our Pinterest page for other great uses of this variety. This variety will set fruit on its own, making it a great choice for the beginner. Flowers are night blooming and are quite huge, over 14 inches across. Stems are a darker green three sided growth with medium sized spines. The plant overall is reliable with plenty of flowers but is a slow grower. Because of this slow growth supplies are limited and this plant sells out yearly. Year after year it is one of the first plants to flower when compared to over 50 varieties. This variety was acquired from a grower in Florida.
