The Rixford is a fast grower. The fruit has magenta flesh. The fruit can reach a weight of up to 750 grams. The taste is very sweet and scores 18 BRIX on a refractor meter. When the plant is mature, it does not give so many fruits, but once it is mature, it will be able to give a lot. The plant is self-pollinating. Like all the dragons, the plant prefers a bit of shade on the ground.
Be on time with harvesting, because with a rain shower a ripe fruit can burst. And do not give water 2 days before harvesting the fruit. The taste then becomes less.
