Title: ´UFGold` Peach
Authors: W B. Sherman and P.M. Lyrene
'UFGold' is an attractive, high quality, yellow and nonmelting flesh peacn released by the Florida Agricultural Experiment Station. 'UFGold' is expected to produce fruit with a tree ripened full flavor while retaining firmness for longer shelf life than fruit from conventional melting-flesh, fresh market varieties. 'UFGold' originated from a cross of two Florida selections with nonmelting Flesh. The seed parent was of Brazilian origin (Diamante open pollinated) and the pollen parent originated by open pollination of a seedling obtained by crossing a Florida selection (not carrying a nonmelting flesh allele) and a North Carolina selection (apparently heterozygous for the nonmelting allele). 'UFGold' was selected from about 100 sibs as the twenty-fourth selection in 1990 and thus designated Fla. 90-24c for testing.
