Abstract

A new and distinct variety of nectarine tree which is of large size with upright vigorous growth; the tree being a regular and productive bearer of large, firm, yellow flesh clingstone fruit having yellow skin color substantially overspread with red and having excellent eating and shipping quality, maturing 3 to 4 days later than Zee Gold nectarine (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 3,087).

Description

ORIGIN OF THE VARIETY
The new variety was originated by me in my experimental orchard at Modesto, Calif. The nectarine tree was a selection of a second generation seedling from a cross between Zee Gold nectarine, (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 3,087) and Early Sun Grand nectarine, (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 1,420). I selected the seedling from a large group of seedlings that were grown and maintained under close observation by me and the present variety which evidenced distinctive desirable characteristics was selected for asexual reproduction and commercialization.
SUMMARY OF THE VARIETY
My new and distinct variety of nectarine tree is of large size, upright vigorous growth and a regular and productive bearer of large, firm, yellow flesh, clingstone fruit with excellent eating quality and the ability to ship to long distance markets. The fruit is further characterized by being larger and maturing 3 to 4 days later than Zee Gold nectarine (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 3,087).
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWING
The accompanying photographic illustrations show typical specimens of the foliage and fruit of my new variety of nectarine tree, with an exterior and sectional view of the fruit with the stone in place and a section of branch and foliage with the upper and lower surface of the leaves being illustrated. The photographs were taken shortly after being picked at maturity (shipping ripe) and the colors are as nearly true as is reasonably possible in a color representation of this type.
