A staff favorite. Sugardragon has the best flavor of any Dragonfruit variety we've tried. The fruit ranges from 1/2lb to 3/4lb and packs a punch. The sweetest of the dragonfruits we offer, with a uniquely strong floral-rose flavor.  The texture is light and smooth, with a light crunch from the seeds. Highly recommended.

Sugardragon is self-fertile and requires no cross pollination. The plant is not a vigorous grower, but the flavor of the fruits is worth the space in your garden. Strong, sturdy plants with a dark forest green skin.

The S8 or Sugar Dragon Dragonfruit is a hybrid variety that was created right here is Southern California. Although it is small in size and weighs about half a pound, S8 is often heralded as the sweetest of all dragonfruit.  The flavor is of sweet roses. These plants are also self-fertile so no hand pollination is required. This variety is Farmer Rishi's favorite variety.
