Disclosed in this patent is a new variety of nectarine tree, grown near Modesto, Calif. According to the researchers, its novelty rests in several desirable attributes.

The tree exhibits vigorous, upright growth and regularly produces large-sized fruit with a red skin color. The fruit has a mild, sweet and low-acid flavor with excellent balance between acid and sugar. Its firm, yellow flesh presents good handling and shipping qualities, and the fruit produces heavy amounts of juice, which enhances flavor.
