Description

Summerprince.-Orig. at U.S. Dept. of Agriculture Southeastern Fruit and Tree Nut Res. Lab., Byron, Ga. Summercrest cross of complex parentage; selected in 1983, tested as BY81P512, and released by W.R. Okie in 1992. Fruit: medium large; very round; 80% bright red on attractive yellow with very short pubescence; flesh yellow with red at pit cavity, firm, melting, semi-clingstone, good texture, and high flavor. Ripens 14 days before Redhaven. Flowers large, showy, pink; blooms with Redglobe; leaf glands reniform. Tree: vigorous; productive; moderate resistance to bacterial spot. Chilling requirement 850 h. Released to replace Redcap and Dixired, to which it is intermediate in chilling. Sets heavily and blooms late so must be thinned early and hard in order to size.

  • 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
