Rixford is a Dragon Fruit hybrid variety from the genus Hylocereus. The fruit is a round non-self-pollinating medium to large sized purple fleshed fruits that weight 1.0 to 1.5 pounds. Growth has skinny three angles with small spines that are very typical with most Hylocereus guatemalensis. The plant is slow growing in the beginning and needs to be more mature to bloom. Once mature growth becomes more aggressive and becomes a high producer. The fruit is very tasty with a nice amount of sweetness scoring an average brix rating of 18. Internet research has stated that this variety crossed with Niezel was involved in creating the varieties such as Cosmic Charlie (2-S), Dark Star (9-S), Physical Graffiti (1-S), Purple Haze (5-S) and Delight (3-S). Additional research also states that this variety was also used with a variety called Houghton to create Voodoo Child (8-S). This seems very likely since it is non-self-pollinating and needs pollen from another plant to set fruit. Making this variety a great choice to ensure a genetic cross. This variety was acquired from a tropical nursery in California.
