Description

Orig. in Beltsville, Md., by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture. Introd. in 1954. (Admiral Dewey x St. John) x Fireglow; cross made in 1940; selected in 1944; tested as USDA B7398. Fruit: medium to large; round, halves equal; skin color especially bright and attractive, at maturity about three-fourths covered with bright red over yellow, pubescence heavy; flesh yellow, especially free from any red through the flesh, but with some red around the stone, very firm melting, fine-textured, flavor fair to good; ships well; pit size medium, free; acceptable for canning, attractive as a frozen product; well-suited for long-distance shipment; ripens about 15 days before Elberta. Tree: productive; vigorous; susceptibility to bacterial spot disease seems similar to Elberta; buds relatively tender to frost; flower large, showy, deep pink, self-fruitful; leaf glands reniform; chilling requirement of 850 h.
