Description

Orig. at Sandhills Res. Sta., Jackson Springs, N.C., by F.E. Correll and C.N. Clayton. North Carolina State Univ., Raleigh. Introd. in 1975. Pekin (Summercrest x Redhaven) x Candor (Redhaven x Erly-Red-Fre); tested as NCA 2699. Fruit: medium; round; flesh medium yellow, with trace of red, texture and flavor good; clingstone until soft-ripe; skin bright yellow covered with 80% to 90% medium red blush, very attractive; ripens 3 to 5 days before Candor. Tree: productive; thinning required; flowers small, nonshowy, self-fertile; chilling requirement appears similar to that of Redhaven; highly resistant to both flesh browning and bacterial spot (Xanthomonas pruni)

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
