Fruit: medium to large; round; skin attractive, one-half or more of surface covered with red blush overbright yellow ground color; flesh deep yellow to orange, firm, holding well after picking, texture fine-melting with very little fiber, more resistant to browning than Elberta, flavor good, freestone; ripens about same time as Redskin.

  • 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
  • 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
