Description

Plant Patent #6267 issued on Aug. 30, 1988 to Mr. Charles W. Haines (Elmer, NJ) and assigned to Adams County Nursery. Salem is a complete tree sport of Loring ripening about two weeks ahead of Loring. This variety has excellent color, firmness, and size. It has yellow flesh and a melting texture with a mild subacid flavor. Trees do not set heavy crops and require less thinning than other varieties. It is very cold-hardy and tolerant to bacterial spot. Bloom is nonshowy and leaf glands are reniform. From Adams County Nursery.
