Rixford is a Dragon Fruit hybrid variety from the genus Hylocereus and the species guatemalensis. The fruit is a round medium-sized purple-fleshed fruit. Fruit typically 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. Flowers are self-sterile meaning you will need another pollinator for the fruit to set. 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 Rixford was also used with a variety called Houghton to create Voodoo Child (8-S). Spicy Exotics collected this variety from a tropical nursery in California.
