ROSE BRIGHT

USPP 15845

Classic Yellow Flesh Freestone Nectarine

Ripens:  -63, with Rose Diamond

 

Skin Colour:  Full, shiny, dark red with very little freckling. Chilling Hours:  ~500
Shape:  Globose with a flat nose. Bloom Date:  2 Days After Rose Diamond.
Size:  Large, 68 - 76mm in breeding grounds. Bloom Density:  Average.
Texture:  Very firm. Blossom Type:  Showy.
Eating Quality:  Good, similar to Diamond Bright. Cropping:  Good setter.

Notes:  Rose Bright is a new release that ripens in the Rose Diamond time slot that is very LARGE, FIRM, and shiny, smooth red with very limited freckling.  It stayed firm a week beyond Rose Diamond and is cosmetically superior.  At the original selection sight in the breeding grounds, 75% of the fruit would not go through a 73mm ring with a few 83mm pieces of fruit.  Also, like Rose Diamond, only a few split pits were observed.
