Moneymaker is quite a bit smaller fruit, nothing that exciting imo.
I think the closest to the dragons is Kurume, but the characteristic of the dragons is more straight fruit, and more equal in diameter closer to the neck, I guess they all crossed and selected for the same mutation, since it gives a more visually appealing product (I only have hybrids of this, so it does suggest this characteristic did not exist in an old variety). Kurume is an excellent variety in terms of taste and quality, certainly worth trying.

The ones in the picture seem old due to the fat neck, but are in fact very young.
