Description

U.S. Plant Patent # 9332. Orig. by C.F. Zaiger, G.N. Zaiger, L.M. Gardener, and G.G.Zaiger, of Zaiger Genetics, Modesto, CA on Oct. 17, 1995. White-fleshed, early maturing sub-acid,clingstone nectarine. It is the result of a first generation cross between a white nectarine of unknown parentage and May Glo Nectarine (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 5,245). A large number of seedlings from this first generation cross were planted, grown and maintained under careful observation, during which time one such seedling, which represents the present variety, being especially desirable for the quality of its fruit, was selected for asexual reproduction and commercialization.

  • Pubescence: 10=nectarine
  • Freeness: 3=early cling, 8=completely free
  • 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
