Also a creation by Paul Thompson, Sugar Dragon was the name given by Linda Nickerson because Sugar Dragon is more marketable than 8-S. It is a cross between Rixford and Houghton. While smaller than most DF, it packs a punch of sweet berry flavor with mild earthiness.

Sugar Dragon 8-S

I received the Sugar Dragon cutting that I ordered and was amazed when I removed it from the box. It was every bit of the advertised length and extremely heavy. This is my 3rd order from Wallace Ranch. I have nothing but praise for the crew. I found their YouTube video to be very informative as well.

Sugar Dragon Review

I received a sturdy cutting. The cutting has some small damage but I know from experience that will not matter. The post office box was scrunched up but all was safe inside.

The fruit of sugar dragon is not very big compared to the typical size of other DF, I wasn't expecting the cutting to be so massive! The flesh of the cutting i received is very plump, dark, and healthy. I hope it takes root soon, I can't wait to have this in the garden.
