Description

Orig. at South Haven, Mich., by Stanley Johnston, Michigan State Univ. Introd. in 1978 by R.L. Andersen, J.E. Moulton, T.M. Thomas, and H.J. Belter. (Redhaven x Fairhaven) o.p.; selected in 1962; tested as SH415. Fruit: medium-large; roundish oblong; skin 70% bright red over golden-yellow ground color; flesh clear yellow, nonbrowning, very firm, freestone; flavor excellent. Ripens 5 to 7 days after Redhaven. Tree: vigor medium; spreading; productive; leaf glands reniform. Flower bud hardiness similar to that of Redhaven. Blossoms nonshowy. Considerably more tolerant than Redhaven to bacterial spot.
