Thanks. Just making sure if anyone knew if it past asunta 4. Since want to be able to have as much info to pick the best ones I would like. Thanks again
4 is the highest it goes as of this year. 5 is under development. The Asunta varieties are created by Edgar Valdivia. Some people are crossing them with other promising varieties and plant on calling them something like 4x, leaving the pure numbers for Edgar to name.
Ok That is what i thought but just wanted to veify. thanks

I tried one of the asuntas but don't remember the number. It was very good for me even though the fruit was a runt and slightly under ripe. Its white flesh with coconut overtones. Very unique trait that I have never tried in dragon fruit.

Frankies red is also very good. It has a very refreshing grassy aroma. Especially when chilled.

1-2 years until it has enough body mass to bear fruit.
