Description

'Burpeachfourteen' was patented 12/02/2003 by The Burchell Nursery, Inc., Oakdale, CA. It is patent number US PP14,342 P2. ‘Burpeachfourteen’ is a new and distinct variety of peach tree, which is of large size, and which has vigorous growth. The new variety is a regular and productive bearer of relatively large, firm yellow flesh, clingstone fruit with good flavor and eating quality. The tree has a medium chilling requirement of approximately 600 hours. The new tree also produces relatively uniformly sized fruit throughout the tree. The fruit has a high degree of red skin coloration, and a firm flesh. The fruit further appears to have good handling and shipping qualities. In addition, the ‘Burpeachfourteen’ Peach tree bears fruit that are ripe for commercial harvesting and shipment on approximately May 6 to May 13 under the prevailing climate conditions experienced in the San Joaquin valley of central California. In relative comparison with the peach tree, ‘Spring Gem’, which is the pollen parent of the new variety, the new variety ripens 14 or more days earlier at the same geographic location.
