Super Sweet Sugar Dragon Fruit
Sugar Dragon is a hybrid variety that comes from Hylocereus guatemalensis and another unknown species. This Dragon Fruit hybrid produces small half-pound to three-quarter pound oval-shaped fruit. The external appearance of the fruit is red with tiny deep green, almost brown fins. The inner flesh is a bright red purplish color with a semi-firm texture that is very sweet. The first fruit tested in 2019 had an average brix score of 18, but research has stated a mature plant can produce fruit with a score in the twenties.
The flowers are of Sugar Dragon are plentiful, fragrant, and self-fertile. Pollen is also used widely to assist in pollinating self-sterile varieties. Sugar Dragon is a robust grower with meaty stems that are olive green in color. Thick small spines occur along the rib line of each stem.
The Sugar Dragon Dragon Fruit variety is a clone created by Paul Thomson called 8-S initially. It was a cross using the Houghton and Rixford varieties.
The 8-S seedlings were later renamed Voodoo Child by a nursery in Florida. Then a few years after that 8-S was renamed by a grower in California Sugar Dragon. Both Sugar and Voodoo Child resemble one another and are very similar to there parent, which is Houghton variety.
