Description

Orig. at Harrow, Ont., Canada, by R.E.C. Layne, Agriculture Canada Res. Sta. Introd. in 1984. Redskin x Harbinger; tested as HW 213. Fruit: medium, to 60 mm when properly thinned; skin color solid, bright red blush over 60% to 70% of surface on bright yellow ground color; pubescence short and sparse; flesh yellow, nonbrowning, melting, medium firm, moderately sweet and juicy; freestone when fully ripe; free of split pits. Fruit ripens 1 day before Candor and Earlired. Pit deeply sculptured; medium; plump; without wings. Flowers showy, pink midseason. Tree: vigor medium; productive; open-spreading, with medium to wide crotch angles; tolerant to Leucostoma canker; resistant to bacterial spot and brown rot. Wood and fruit buds are winter hardy like Redhaven; full crops were produced after exposure to -26 and -28C.
