Description

Orig. in Blacksburg, Va., by G.D. Oberle, Agr. Res. Sta., Virginia Polytechnic Inst. Introd. in 1970. Rio Oso Gem x (Shippers Late Red x Sunhigh). Cross made in 1956, selected in 1960, tested as V.P.I. 60. Fruit: large, 3 inches in diam.; round, slightly flattened halves; skin rich yellow groundcover with two-thirds covered with bright red blush, pubescence short; flesh orange-yellow with attractive pinkish-red near pit, firm, texture smooth; flavor mild, superior to Rio Oso Gem; ripens 6 days after Elberta or with Rio Oso Gem. Tree: size average or above; round to spreading; vigor and productivity average or above; hardiness same as Rio Oso Gem; flower small, medium red; leaf glands reniform. Variety is similar to Rio Oso Gem, but has better tree characteristics and is more productive. May replace Rio Oso Gem in Virginia.
