Description

Nicaraguan Red

Nicaraguan Red Dragon Fruit variety comes from the genus Hylocereus and the species guatemalensis.This Dragon Fruit variety has a bright purple flesh thin skin. It is imported from a large-scale Nicaraguan commercial Dragon Fruit plantation. Fruits average .75 to 1 pound in size with a tasty and refreshing tropical taste. Stem growth is very typical and resembles other H. guatemalensis varieties. The growth is a bit smaller and segmented so I would recommend additional support when growing this variety.  Flower bud to flower bloom took 21 days and an additional 30 days from flower to fruit. Fruit did set on its own so I suspect this variety of Dragon Fruit to be self-fertile. Once the first fruit was harvested I was disappointed to see how small it was. It weighed in at .25 pounds, however, it tested at an 18.5 brix, WOW! For this reason, I’m excited to test larger fruit so stay posted for updated results soon. This variety was acquired from a tropical nursery in California.

    The “cutting” I received actually turned out to be two cuttings connected! They are doing amazing in a pot with a tomato trellis. I’m hoping for a few flower buds in the next two years!
