Dragon fruit variety thoughts
« on: September 19, 2021, 04:08:50 PM »
Hello,

I am new to the forums and or this site.  I have a few varieties of DF already.  I am looking to expand my collection with two more 20gl pots/trellis setups (3 DF per pot).  I have narrowed down my choices of DF to the below five.  I would like to choose 3 of the below.  The Godzilla is really the one that is making me second guess replacing one of the SF ones.

Any thoughts or experience with the below DF's? 

Frankie's Red (SF)
Desert King (SF)
Yellow Thai (SF)
Godzilla (SS)
Cosmic Charlie (SS)


Other varieties I have:

1-Sugar
2-Vietnamese White
3-Yellow
4-Dark Star
5-Tricia
6-Voodoo Child
7-Purple Haze
8-Natural Mystic
9-Connie Mayer
10-Hailey's Comet
11-American Beauty
 
Thank you for your feedback.

Iíve had great growth out of frankies red despite its reputation.  Godzilla has grown well too and looks so cool and massive.  Desert king is the fastest growing.  No fruit yet.  Yellow Thai is taking its sweet time to root, a few months.

Thanks for the reply.  I have heard the Desert King grows fast.  The Godzilla looks cool when it curves while it grows.  If you had to choose 3 out of those 5 what would you select?  All of those DF's I can get for $15 or below in price for a 1' to 1.5' cutting.
