Georges White Dragon Fruit is a variety of dragonfruit from the genus Hylocereus and species undatus. It has a bright pink exterior with green-tipped fins. There are a lot of small, crunchy seeds in the grayish-white flesh. It is known for its high vitamin and fiber content without being overly sweet.
The weight of fruits ranges from 0.75 to 1.5 pounds. The Brix score is 13 to 16, which means that the taste of the fruit is mild.
Georges White and Thai Dragon are very similar, and many gardeners confuse them. But if you take both fruits in your hands, you will see that there is still a slight difference between them. Not to mention the different taste.
