Harvest mid to late-August in central California, after Arctic Queen white nectarine. Tested as 121LB410. Estimated chilling requirement 7-800 hours. Self-fruitful.

    Arctic Jay

    Taste test winner: best of all fruits at the Dave Wilson Nursery blind fruit tasting held July 5, 1996.' Very attractive, firm, freestone fruit is richly flavored, with a balance of acid and sugar. Ripens between Arctic Glo and Heavenly White white nectarines. Estimated chill requirement: 500 hours or less. Self fruitful.

    Artic Star

    Early-season, super sweet, white fleshed nectarine. Low in acid, no tartness. Rave reviews in trial tastings. Semi-freestone with beautiful dark red skin. Harvest approximately June 10th to 30th at Hickman, California. Self-fruitful.

    Double Delight

    Sensational fruit consistently the best-flavored yellow nectarine - plus magnificent, double pink flowers. Dark red-skinned, freestone fruit is sweet, with unusually rich flavor — very high-scoring in taste tests. Heavy bearing tree. Harvest early-to-mid July in central California.

    Honey Kist

    Subacid, high sugar, early-ripening yellow nectarine - one of the top-scored fruits at the blind tasting held July 5, 1996 at Dave Wilson Nursery. Harvest begins late June in central California, about with Independence nectarine. (Begin picking before the fruit begins to soften; the subacid varieties have the advantage of being good to eat before they are fully ripe.) Estimated chill requirement: 900 hours or less. Self-fruitful.

    Liz's Late

    Sprightly-sweet, intense, spicy flavor - the State of the Art in fruit breeding. Overall score of 7.5 at the August 25, 1995 Dave Wilson Nursery fruit tasting - one of the highest scores for any yellow nectarine or peach to date. Late August to early September in central California. 600-700 hours. Self-fruitful.

    Necta Zee Miniature

    Sweet, very flavorful yellow freestone, beautiful red skin. Mid-June to early July in central California. Vigorous growth to 6 ft. Best self-fruitful miniature nectarine. 400 hours or less. Self-fruitful.

    Sauzee King
