A little update on our expansion progress. Our plants have been relocated to another area of our property. Our old greenhouse frames are now down or moved. New electrical and water lines are all in place. And lastly, after three weeks of very wet weather we were able to get dirt in for our new greenhouse foundation.
There are many stories and Dragon Fruit information at Spicy Exotics this weekend with these two fellas. We tried for the first time the Orange Flower Ocamponis fruit from Mexico. It had an amazing unique flavor, 21+ brix, minimal seeds, and deep red firm flesh that was tasty and refreshing. We are excited to have this variety growing and can't wait to compare our fruit results.
At Spicy Exotics we are in the process of collecting information on a new Cerrado species from Peru. Even our dog Mario was very excited to try this dragon fruit variety and he loved it!
More information coming soon on or website.
Our 2022 fruiting season started off rough, but we managed to overcome our pest. We lost most of our first flowers due to the leaf footed bug. Our second flower cycle is looking like better than any previous year. Over 50 varieties are now fruiting and over 100 different varieties having flowers. In addition, over a dozen varieties are flowering for the first time for Spicy Exotics. This means lots of new releases coming soon.
