Description

Condor

Condor Dragon Fruit comes from the genus Hylocereus and the species guatemalensis. This fruit is considered to be one of the better tasting varieties at the Pitaya Festival held in Southern California. This variety is a cross between a Nicaraguan and Guatemalan Pitahaya. Spicy Exotics collected this variety from a grower in California.

Cuttings adapt and grow quickly under ideal conditions. Growth is three-sided with small thorns that are very typical looking of Hylocereus guatemalensis. Single cuttings have reached over six feet growing just one summer. Due to this aggressive growth, heavy pruning is recommended. The flowers of Condor are very similar to other H. guatemalensis varieties with a white and yellow appearance. A generous size flower at 14 inches is also self-fertile.

The fruit is large with bright purple flesh. The exterior skin is light green and pink hues with the green turning pinkish-red as the bright purple flesh becomes ripe. Weighing 1 to 1.5 pounds, the fruit also matches its appearance with flavor and sweetness with an average brix rating of 19.

  1. John

    Got this one on September 16, produced 5 flowers . Now, got my first and only fruit ripe today, only about 1/2lb. Although only 1 fruit, I found still has some buds coming up. I believe it will produce more and bigger fruits next season. 6-30-18

      For sure, keep doing what you’re doing.

    Can I tell you how impressed I am with Spicy Exotics? When you find someone that is so reliable to order from, it’s like getting a box of chocolate covered cherries and you just cannot stop eating them. Now – I had already completed my wish list of Tyes’ different varieties that I wanted “BUT” I just had to have ONE MORE! By the way, my new cutting is Fantastic.
