The fruits made by the Thomson G2 Dragon Fruit plant are red with green tips and have purple (pink) flesh that is tasty and sour. This is a great variety with a medium yield that often needs to be pollinated to set fruit.
Paul Thomson first found the Thomson G2 dragonfruit variety and made a copy of it. This plant can’t make seeds on its own, so it needs to be pollinated by a different kind. It makes a large, sweet, and tasty fruit that weighs between 1 and 2 pounds. Stems are strong, but they will burn in the sun, though they rarely get hurt for good.

Like many Guatemalan varieties, this one blooms early and keeps making lots of fruit well into the fall. Even though it doesn’t like the sun and can’t reproduce on its own, the large, sweet, and attractive fruit make it worth the trouble. To prove this, the average brix rating of the fruit is 18, and some of the bigger fruits have a brix rating of 20. Not to be confused with G1 (which has a white flesh color)
One of the kinds I like best. Good size fruit. >18 for Brix. Good balance between sour and sweet.
