Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Dragon Fruit thread.

You really should get ahold of some Sugar Dragon variety. I personally havnt tried the new, larger yellow fruits that have started showing up recently, but I know I wasn't a fan of the original yellow Megalanthus. It wasn't its sugar content either that turned me off, in fact, it was almost the opposite. To me, Megalanthus yellow tastes almost entirely of sugar, like eating old time rock candy, pure sweet but no other flavor. I do know some of the darker reds and magentas are getting pushed into high sugar production, but for me its not all about sweet. Add a bit of fruity flavor to that, though , and now we're talking.
Having said that, Im hoping I can get a chance to check out that new yellow variety sometime soon to I can give an honest, personal, comparison.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Propagation by cuttings: Bertholletia excelsa

Hi,

did someone successfully propagate Bertholletia excelsa by cuttings ? If possible I would like to produce one or two additional plants (I have 3 plants).
I have not tried it. But would guess it's not going to work, unless you use rooting hormone and a misting house. Let us know if you are succesful. Good luck.

Yeah Oscar, it could be the difference between your location and mine, again.
Right. Tropics is a very large area: 0 to 23 north and south of equator. People living outside of the tropics tend to assume tropics is all the same climate, but that's very far from true, especially when you include also differences due to elevation.

Here the pictures of the perfect Dragon Fruit that I had the good fortune of eating. BTW, Iím not exaggerating when I say that the sugar content was perfect. While I was eating it I was blown away by how delicious it was. I didnít have at all the experience that I have with all the other Dragon Fruit varieties, of wishing that it was sweeter.

Just out curiosity, I purchased just one, yellow colored Dragon Fruit fruit at Whole Foods Market about two months ago. To my surprise, the taste was delicious. And, the fruit size and quality was perfect, IMO. I was back a few days later and purchased 3 more.

The journey of searching for the perfect Dragon Fruit has been quite rewarding. And, this year, it has culminated with the unexpected early success of finding the perfect Dragon Fruit variety. The fruit itself was imported from the tropical fruit paradise of South America.

Up next in this Dragon Fruit Search Adventure and Journey: (1) Obtain a cutting of the Dragon Fruit described above, and (2) Continue the Search for a Red Colored Dragon Fruit with the same quality specifications.
