'SP 5-16', 'SP 9-5', 'SP 10-12' AND 'SP 13-25': ADVANCED PEACH SELECTIONS FROM ARGENTINA

G.H. Valentini, M.A. Daorden, L.E. Arroyo
Four advanced selections are being evaluated at the San Pedro Experiment Station, Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Agropecuaria (INTA) to provide medium-chilling, commercially acceptable peach cultivars that ripen between ‘June Gold’ and ‘Red Globe’.
‘SP 5-16’, ‘SP 9-5’ and ‘SP 10-12’ have a fruit developmental period (FDP) about 95 days and a chilling requirement of about 500 hours, meanwhile ‘SP 13-25’ has a FDP of 110 days. Flowers are showy and leaf glands are reniform in all selections.
The average fruit weight varies among 150 (‘SP 5-16’) and 190 g (‘SP 13-25’). ‘SP 5-16’ produces semi-freestone fruit that ripens in late November. The rest of the selections produce freestone peaches that ripen in mid-December (‘SP 9-5’ and ‘SP 10-12’) and late December (‘SP 13-25’) in the north-eastern fruit growing area of the Province of Buenos Aires.
These selections are yellow-flesh peaches and considered as promising alternatives for the regional mid-season.
