Description

Orig. at U.S. Dept. of Agriculture Appalachian Fruit Res. Sta., Kearneysville, W.Va., by R. Scorza, H.W. Fogle, L.E. Gilreath, K. Patten, E.W. Neuendorff, and W.R. Okie. Introd. in 1988. [(Halberta O.P.) x Redskin] x {Loring x [(Hiley x Fireglow) x Fireglow]}. Fruit: large (usually 65 to 75 mm, but can reach 100 mm); round; skin 30% to 80% red blush on yellow ground color; flesh yellow, nonbrowning, firm, freestone; flavor excellent. Ripens uniformly, about 16 days after Redhaven. Good cropping after natural freezes of -21 to -28C. Tree: vigorous; flower bud production 1.25 times that of Redhaven. Resistant to bacterial leafspot under normal disease pressure. Chilling requirement 800 h.

  • 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
