Description

Plant Patent #12008 (Zaiger Genetics, Modesto, CA, 2001). A new and distinct variety of nectarine tree, which is of large size, vigorous, upright growth and a regular and productive bearer of large, freestone, yellow flesh fruit with excellent flavor and eating quality. The fruit is further characterized by having firm flesh with good handling and shipping quality, the flesh being moderately juicy with a mild, sweet, sub-acid flavor, with the ability to hold firm on the tree for 2 weeks after maturity (shipping ripe), and having a high degree of attractive red skin color. In comparison to the Honey Kist Nectarine (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 9,333), which has a similar mild, sweet, sub-acid flavor, the new variety produces fruit that is larger in size and is approximately 25 days later in maturity.

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
