Description

Orig. in South Haven, Mich., by Stanley Johnson and J.E. Moulton, Michigan Agr. Expt. Sta. Introd. in 1963. Kalhaven x South Haven 309 (SH 50 x Redhaven); cross made in 1952; tested as SH 385. Fruit: medium to large, uniform; nearly round; skin bright red over gold, very attractive, moderately thick and tough; flesh clear yellow, too much red in pit cavity for commercial canning but satisfactory for home canning, freezes unusually well, firm, very resistant to browning; freestone, easily pitted by mechanical means; remains on tree when mature; ripens 1 week or slightly more before Elberta, in a very favorable season. Tree: medium to large, vigorous, productive; self-fruitful; above average in hardiness; flower medium in size; leaves with reniform glands.

  • Status: 0=discard, 1=keep
  • Notes: SOS=soft on suture, SOT=soft on tip, RIF=red in flesh, GAS=green around stem
  • RAP=red around pit, GGC=green ground color, sz=size, wh=white, yt=young tree, CCT=concave tip
  • Bloom date is when approx. 90% of blooms are open (full bloom)

The description of each variety of peach or nectarine fruit under each group is in different formats as this information is collected from varied sources and hence is not consistent
