In this thread I would like to share some information we know about a dragon fruit variety called Connie Gee. I have to tell you right off the bat, there is very little information. I hope to be able to add to this material soon.
So, let’s start with his taste. If you’re a fan of sweetness, you’ll definitely like it. I think this really tastes very like a lot of berry flavor, sweet grape, fruit punch and a little bit coconut and flowers. A little bit of tart, but the tart comes off in a way. No Connie Mayer pitahaya flavor, really.

What, in fact, did I like so much about this variety? As I said before, I loved the palette of the flavor. The taste buds in my mouth went crazy.
With the taste is solved, so let’s talk about its appearance. So, this fruit has a pale red rind with green fins, and is quite firm even when ripe. The fruits are quite large and weigh about 0.75-1.5 lb, the brix score is 19-20 (some sources indicate that it was possible to reach 22).
According to public sources, Connie Gee is a hybrid of two varieties: Connie Mayer and Thomson G1. It takes an average of 88 days from bud emergence to harvest: the flower opens 30 days after emergence, then it takes about 58 more from flowering to harvest.
What can be said in conclusion here? I was very surprised when I tasted it. Really sweet and dynamic flavor! If I were to give this dragon fruit variety a score out of 10, I would give this dragon fruit an easy 10 out of 10. We definitely got to give this one a try and grow this one.
