Title: 'Sunbest' Nectarine
Authors: W.B. Sherman and P.M. Lyrene
'Sunbest' nectarine, [Prunus persica (L.) Batsch], is released for grower trial by the Florida Agricultural Experiment Station. Trees of 'Sunbest' produce an attractive, sweet tasting, yellow and melting flesh, semi-freestone fruit intended for fresh use. It is expected to replace 'Sunraycer' nectarine because it is similar in bloom and ripening time and has larger and more attractive fruit. 'Sunbest' origi nated from a 1992 cross of 'Sunraycer' nectarine x 'Suncoast' nectarine, was se lected and propagated in 1994, and tested as Fla. 94-15n.
