Description

U.S. Plant Patent #9695 (Nov. 19, 1996) of Zaiger Genetics, Modesto, CA. Our new development is a distinct variety of peach tree which has the following unique combination of features that are outstanding in a new variety. 1. Fruit with good flavor and eating quality. 2. Vigorous upright in growth. 3. Heavy and regular production of fruit. 4. Fruit staying firm on the tree 10 to 12 days after maturity (shipping ripe). 5. Fruit with good handling and shipping quality. 6. Fruit with a high degree of attractive red skin color. ORIGIN OF THE VARIETY The present new variety of peach tree was originated by us in our experimental orchard located near Modesto, calif., as a first generation cross between a seedling selection with the field indentification number 39EB706 and Sweet Gem Peach (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 7,952). The female parent 39EB706 originated from a cross between two selected seedlings, 32EA300 and 11E284. The seedling selection 32EA300 originated from a cross between O'Henry Peach (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 2,964) and Giant Babcock Peach (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 1,353). The seedling selection 11E284 originated from seed of an open pollinated Red Grand Nectarine (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 1,060). A large group of these first generation seedlings were grown and maintained under close observation, during which time we recognized the desirable fruit characteristics of the present new variety and selected it for asexual reproduction and commercialization.

  • Size is in inches
  • Shape: round is assumed, T=tip, P=point, S=suture, OB=oblate, OV=ovate
  • 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
