Description

Orig. in Byron, Ga., by W.R. Okie and V.E. Prince, S.E. Fruit & Tree Nut Res. Lab and U.S. Dept. of Agriculture. [Redglobe x (Dixieland x FV240-1)] x [(Hiley x Fireglow) x B2832]. Introd. in 1981. Cross made in 1963; first fruited 1966. Fruit: large; round; attractive: better color and shape than those of Redskin and Blake; skin 50% to 70% bright red with attractive yellow ground color, pubescence light; flesh yellow with some red at pit, firm, but melting, texture and flavor good; freestone; ripens 2 days before Elberta. Tree: vigorous, productive; blossoms large, pink, showy, self-fertile, leaf glands globose, chilling requirement 800 h; good resistance to bacterial spot, more so than Blake, but more susceptible than Redskin.

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
