A new and distinct variety of peach tree (Prunus persica), which is denominated varietally as ‘Wapeachone’ and that produces an attractively colored yellow-fleshed, clingstone peach, which is mature for harvesting and shipment approximately October 12 to October 19 under the ecological conditions prevailing in the San Joaquin Valley of central California.


Botanical designation: ‘Prunus persica’.
Varietal denomination: ‘Wapeachone’.
The present variety of peach tree resulted from an on-going program of fruit and nut tree breeding. The purpose of this program is to improve the commercial quality of deciduous fruit varieties and rootstocks by creating and releasing promising selections of Prunus species. To this end we make both controlled and hybrid cross pollinations each year to produce seedling populations from which improved progenies are evaluated and selected.
The seedling ‘Wapeachone’ was originated by the breeders and selected from among a population of seedlings growing in their experimental orchards located near Fowler, Calif. These seedlings, grown on their own roots, were derived from planting seed of an unpatented female parent seedling ‘J25.002’, which was either open pollinated or, just as likely, self-pollinated. The resulting fruit was collected from the female parent at a mature stage, and seeds were extracted in August of 2009. After a period of stratification, the seed was placed in the greenhouse by population and then field planted for tree establishment and, ultimately, to exhibit fruit for evaluation. One yellow-fleshed peach seedling, which is the present variety, exhibited especially desirable characteristics and was designated as ‘H14.200’. This seedling was marked for subsequent observation. After the 2013 fruiting season, the new variety of peach tree was selected for advanced evaluation and repropagation.
Asexual reproduction of this new and distinct variety of peach tree was accomplished by budding the new peach tree onto thirty trees of ‘Nemaguard’ Rootstock (un-patented). This was performed by the breeders in their experimental orchard located near Fowler, Calif. Subsequent evaluations of these asexually reproduced plants have shown those asexual reproductions run true to the original tree. All characteristics of the original tree and its fruit were established and appear to be transmitted through these succeeding asexual propagations.
‘Wapeachone’ is a new and distinct variety of peach tree, which is considered of relatively large size and which has a vigorous growth characteristic. This new tree is also a regular and productive bearer of relatively large, firm, yellow-fleshed, clingstone fruit which have a very good flavor and eating qualities.
This new peach tree has a medium chilling requirement of approximately 650 hours and further produces relatively uniformly sized fruit throughout the tree's canopy. In addition to the foregoing, the fruit of the new peach also appears to have good handling and shipping qualities. The ‘Wapeachone’ peach tree bears fruit which are typically ripe for commercial harvesting and shipment on approximately October 12 to October 19 under the ecological conditions prevailing in the San Joaquin Valley of central California. In relative comparison to the ‘Burpeachthirtyseven’ peach tree (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 28,597), which is the closest known variety, the current variety of peach tree bears fruit that ripens approximately 14 days later than the comparator variety. When compared to the seed parent, the current variety ripens approximately 10 days later. A comparison to the pollen parent would express the same difference in ripening date if the seed parent was self-pollenated.
FIG. 1 is a color photograph of two whole mature fruit harvested, from a fifth leaf year tree, displaying both the apical and basal fruit aspects. One mature fruit bisected transversely through the sutural plane, which reveals the flesh color and stone characteristics thereof. The external coloration of the fruit as shown in the photograph is sufficiently matured for harvesting and shipment. Additionally, one of the bisected fruit hemispheres displays a typical stone still in contact with fruit, but with the flesh removed.
FIG. 2 is a color photograph of the flowers of the ‘Wapeachone’ tree.
The colors in these photographs are as nearly true as is reasonably possible in a color representation of this type. Due to chemical development, processing and printing, the flowers and fruit depicted in these photographs may, or may not, be accurate when compared to the actual specimen. For this reason, future color references should be made to the color plates (Royal Horticultural Society, Fourth Edition, 2001) and descriptions provided, hereinafter.
The following detailed description has been prepared to solely comply with the provisions of 35 U.S.C. § 112, and does not constitute a commercial warranty (either expressed or implied) that the present variety will in the future display all the botanical, pomological, or other characteristics as set forth, hereinafter. Therefore, this disclosure may not be relied upon to support any future legal claims including, but not limited to, breach of warranty of merchantability, or fitness for any purpose, or non-infringement which is directed, in whole, or in part, to the present variety.
Referring more specifically to the pomological details of this new and distinct variety of peach tree, the following has been observed during the sixth fruiting season, and under the ecological conditions prevailing at the orchards of the assignee located near the town of Fowler, county of Fresno, state of Calif. All major color code designations are by reference to The R.H.S. Colour Chart (Royal Horticultural Society, Fourth Edition, 2001) provided by The Royal Horticultural Society of Great Britain. Common color names are also occasionally used.
  • Tree:
      • Size.—Generally considered medium to medium-large in its growth pattern as compared to other common commercial peach cultivars ripening in the late season of maturity. The tree of the present variety was pruned to a height of about 270.0 cm to about 310.0 cm at commercial maturity. Fruit size can vary with crop load and the conditions under which the fruit and tree are grown.
      • Width.—Approximately 265.0 cm.
      • Vigor.—Considered moderately vigorous. The present peach tree variety grew from about 175.0 cm to about 180.0 cm in height during the first growing season. The new variety was pruned to a height of about 150.0 cm during the first dormant season, and primary scaffolds were then selected for the desired tree structure.
      • Productivity.—Productive. Fruit set varies from more than the desired crop load, to levels higher than desired amounts, when the new variety is grown in a suitable horticultural zone and under appropriate commercial nursery conditions. The fruit set is spaced by thinning to develop the remaining fruit into the desired market-sized fruit. The number of the fruit set varies with the prevailing climatic conditions and the cultural practices employed.
      • Fruit bearing.—Regular. Fruit set has been more than adequate during the previous years of observation, and thinning was necessary during the past 8 years on both the original seedling and on subsequent asexually reproduced trees.
      • Tree form.—Upright and pruned into a vase shape.
      • Density.—Considered moderately dense.
      • Hardiness.—The present tree was grown and evaluated in USDA Hardiness Zone 9. The calculated winter chilling requirements of the new tree is approximately 650 hours at a temperature below 7.0 degrees C. The present variety appears to be hardy under typical central San Joaquin Valley climatic conditions.
  • Trunk:
      • Diameter.—Approximately 22.0 cm in diameter when measured at approximately 15.5 cm above the soil level. This measurement was taken at the beginning of the sixth growing season.
      • Bark texture.—Considered moderately rough with folds of papery scarfskin being present. Since bark development and coloration change with advancing tree age, this characteristic varies with the tree vigor, age, and regional conditions. Therefore, this is not a dependable descriptor of the new variety.
      • Lenticels.—Numerous flat, oval lenticels are present. The lenticels range in size from about 3.5 mm to about 5.5 mm in width, and between about 1.0 mm and about 2.0 mm in height. The development and size of the trunk lenticels can be influenced, to some degree, by the ambient growing conditions and are not necessarily a dependable characteristic of this variety. As trees of this variety mature, lenticels are present, but they are generally covered by increasing layers of cork (mature bark) and therefore become less apparent.
      • Lenticel color.—Considered an orange brown (RHS Greyed-Orange Group N167 A).
      • Bark coloration.—Variable, but it is generally considered to be a greyed tan (RHS Brown Group 200 B). This bark description was taken from trees in their sixth leaf which have ruptured the scarf skin, and which also have developed bark furrowing which is much more typical of the bark of older trees. It should be noted that the coloration of the bark is influenced, and varies, as the smoother, darker background color approaches other bark features, such as the lenticels and the initial fissures which form a feature of the scarf skin development.
  • Branches:
      • Size.—Considered medium large for the variety.
      • Diameter.—Average as compared to other peach varieties. The branches have a diameter of about 13.0 cm when measured during the sixth year after grafting.
      • Flowering shoot thickness.—Average for the species. Generally, the most consistent flower bud development and, therefore, potential fruiting sites occur on shoots which are about 7.0 mm in diameter or larger but generally less than about 15.0 mm in diameter at the time of bloom.
      • Surface texture.—Average and appearing relatively smooth, but with more furrowing on wood which is several years old.
      • Crotch angles.—Primary branches are considered variable and are usually growing at an angle of about 45 degrees when measured from a horizontal plane.
      • Current season shoots.—Surface texture — Substantially glabrous.
      • Internode length.—Approximately 3.0 cm.
      • Color of mature branches.—Approximately Grey brown (RHS Greyed-Orange Group 177 A).
      • Current season's shoots.—Color. — Light green (RHS Yellow-Green Group 145 A). The color of new shoot tips is considered a light green (RHS Yellow-Green Group 145 A). The vegetative shoot color can be significantly influenced by plant nutrition, irrigation practices, and exposure to sunlight, and therefore should not be considered a consistent botanical characteristic of this new variety.
  • Leaves:
      • Size.—Considered average for the species. Leaf measurements have been taken from vigorous, upright, current-season growth, at approximately mid-shoot. The leaf size is often influenced by prevailing growing conditions, quality and intensity of available sunlight, and the location of the leaf within the tree canopy. For this reason, leaves sizes can vary significantly based upon the ambient light and other cultural factors listed above and are not typically considered a dependable botanical descriptor.
      • Leaf length.—About 152.0 mm to about 162.0 mm.
      • Leaf width.—About 32.0 mm to about 37.0 mm.
      • Leaf base-shape.—The leaves generally exhibit equal marginal symmetry relative to the leaf longitudinal axis.
      • Leaf form.—Lanceolate.
      • Leaf tip form.—Acuminate.
      • Leaf color.—Upper Leaf Surface — Medium green (approximately RHS Yellow-Green Group 144 A).
      • Leaf texture.—
      • Upper leaf surface.—Glabrous.

      • Size.—Considered large for the species.
      • Length.—About 13.0 mm to about 15.5 mm.
      • Diameter.—About 1.5 mm to about 2.0 mm.
      • Color.—A light green (approximately RHS Yellow-Green Group 145 B).
      • Texture.—Glabrous.
      • Strength.—Durable for species until senescence.
      • Leaf glands.—
      • Size.—Considered relatively small for the species; about 1.0 mm in width; and about 1.5 mm in height.
      • Number.—Generally, one per marginal side. Occasionally two glands per side are found. Observations of more than two glands per marginal side are very uncommon.
      • Type.—Glands located at the base of the leaf are predominantly reniform in shape. An additional one to two, or occasionally more glands, which appear reniform, and stalked gland primordia are often present at the basal margin of the leaf petiole as well.
      • Color.—Considered a yellowed greed (approximately RHS Yellow-Green Group 151 A). Typically, the coloration of the glands darkens, and occasionally begins to desiccate relatively early in the growing season.
      • Leaf stipules.—
      • Size.—Medium large for this variety with a length of about 11.0 mm to about 14.0 mm and an average width of about 1.0 mm.
      • Number.—Typically, 2 per leaf bud and up to 6 per shoot tip.
      • Form.—Lanceolate in form and having a serrated marginal edge.
      • Color.—Green (approximately RHS Yellow-Green Group 145 A) when young, but graduating to a brown color (approximately RHS Greyed-Orange Group 165 A) with advancing senescence. The leaf stipules are generally considered to be early deciduous.
  • Flower buds:
      • Hardiness.—No winter injury (bud death) has been noted during the last several years of observation in the central San Joaquin Valley. The new variety of peach tree has not been intentionally subjected to drought, cold, or heat stress, and, therefore, this information is not available.
      • Flower bud.—Size — Variable and dependent on the state of maturity. The flower buds as described were observed approximately 7 days prior to bloom.
      • Length.—Approximately, 16.5 millimeters.
      • Diameter.—Approximately, 9.5 millimeters.

      • Juice production.—Moderate.
      • Brix.—About 15.0 degrees to about 17.5 degrees. This characteristic varies slightly with the number of fruits per tree; fruit position on the tree; the maturity of fruit when harvested; the prevailing cultural practices; and the ambient climatic conditions.
      • Acidity.—Considered medium. Approximately 0.67 titratable acidity at fruit harvest. Acid levels assayed from fruit flesh can vary with fruit maturity; length of time in cold storage; sunlight exposure; and climatic, regional, seasonal, and cultural influences.
      • Flesh color.—It is considered yellow (approximately RHS Yellow-Orange Group 21 C). The present variety often exhibits red bleed, which radiates from about 4.0 mm to about 12.0 mm from the stone. Approximately RHS Red Group 45 B.
  • Stone:
      • Type.—Considered a tight freestone.
      • Size.—It is generally considered to be medium-large for the species. The stone size varies significantly depending upon the tree vigor, the crop load, and the prevailing growing and cultural conditions under which the tree was grown.
      • Length.—Average, approximately 40.0 mm.

      • Apex.—Shape — The stone exhibits a slight acute apex.
      • Stone surface.—
      • Surface texture.—Considered irregularly furrowed toward the apex. Further, more pitting exists in the mid-portion of the stone (laterally) and is more common toward the base.
      • Ridges.—Ridging is generally more prominent and is usually oriented parallel and laterally relative at the ventral and dorsal margins.
      • Ventral edge.—The ventral edge is generally is described as having adjoining ridges formed from each hemisphere. There are longitudinal grooves running alongside this joined ventral suture.
      • Dorsal edge.—Shape — Generally considered even. The folds of the surface ridges appearing on the external margins often end gently along the suture.
      • Stone color.—The color of a mature, dry stone is generally considered a dull brown (approximately RHS Greyed-Orange Group 165 A). Stone color can vary considering how recently the fruit has ripened, harvested, degree of oxidation, surface drying, and blanching due to exposure sunlight.
      • Tendency to split.—Splitting has rarely been noted.
      • Kernel.—
      • Length.—About 15.0 mm to about 18.0 mm.
      • Width.—About 10.0 mm to about 12.0 mm.
      • Thickness.—About 5.0 mm to about 6.0 mm.
      • Size.—The kernel is considered medium in size.
      • Form.—Considered generally ovoid.
      • Kernel surface texture.—Kernel pellicle is shortly pubescent.
      • Color.—A dark tan (RHS Greyed-Orange Group N167 B).
      • Use.—The present variety ‘Wapeachone’ is a peach tree of the late season of maturity, which produces fruit that are considered to be firm, attractively colored, and useful for both local and long-distance shipping.
      • Keeping quality.—Appears excellent. The fruit of the present variety has stored well for periods of up to 35 days after harvest at 1.0 degree Celsius.
      • Shipping quality.—Good. The fruit of the new peach tree variety showed minimal bruising of the flesh or skin damage after being subjected to normal harvesting and packing procedures.
      • Resistance to insects and disease.—No susceptibilities were noted. The present variety has not been intentionally tested to expose or detect any susceptibilities or resistances to any known plant, fruit diseases, insect, frost, winter injury, or other environmental factors.
Although the new variety of peach tree possesses the described characteristics when grown under the ecological conditions prevailing near Fowler, Calif., in the Central part of the San Joaquin Valley of California, variations of the usual magnitude, and characteristics incident to changes in growing conditions, fertilization, nutrition, pruning, pest control, frost, climatic variables, and changes in horticultural management are to be expected.
