Description

Goldrich is a public cultivar developed by the U.S.D.A. at Washington State University’s Irrigated Agricultural Research Center (Prosser, WA). The original cross in 1954 by Harold Fogle combined SunGlo x Perfection. The resulting seedling was tested as PA5-61. Goldrich fruit are large and oval, with nearly equal halves. It has firm, deep orange flesh with a fine texture, and has good flavor and quality. Goldrich matures about 6 to 8 days before Wenatchee, having a bright orange, waxy skin with almost no blush. The ground color must be allowed to develop fully to assure low acidity. Goldrich trees are vigorous and productive. Goldrich is only partially self-fertile and should be cross-pollinated with Wenatchee, Earliril, Blenril, Riland, or Rival. It is hardier than Wenatchee and more resistant to bacterial spot than Blenril and Wenatchee.

Key

  • Evaluations are based on a 1-8 scale (6=OK,7=Commercially acceptable, 8=Excellent)
  • 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
