Description

Orig. in Fort Valley, Ga., by John H. Weinberger, U.S. Dept. of Agriculture Hort. Field Sta. Introd. in 1953. USDA FV 5-56 (Halehaven x self) x Dixigem; cross made in 1945; selected in 1948; tested as USDA FV 126-79. Fruit: size medium; ovate; skin yellow ground color, three-fourths covered with a bright, attractive red blush, pubescence very light; flesh yellow, firm but melting, smooth textured and of good but mild flavor; near-freestone when fully ripe; ripens 2 to 3 days earlier than Dixigem and about 4 days earlier than Redhaven at Fort Valley. Tree: vigorous and productive; susceptibility to bacterial spot disease is evidently about the same as Elberta; flowers small-petaled, self-fruitful; leaf glands reniform; chilling requirement is slightly higher than Hiley and less than Elberta, or about 800 h.

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
