  • Patent number: PP27066
    Abstract: The present invention relates to an interspecific tree and more particularly to a new and distinct variety broadly characterized by a medium size, medium to weak vigor, hardy, and very productive tree. Being self-unfruitful, the present variety requires cross pollination from an apricot, interspecific, or plum tree that blooms during the late season. The present variety produces a moderate amount of blossoms with sufficient pollen to entice good bee activity to facilitate pollination. The fruit matures under the ecological conditions described during late July, with first picking on Jul. 24, 2014. The fruit is uniformly medium in size, mostly red in skin color with moderate freckling, clingstone in type, globose to oblate in shape, mostly orange in flesh color, firm in texture, typically 19 brix, and good in flavor.

  • Patent number: PP27105
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a peach-almond hybrid tree, Prunus sp., and more particularly to a new and distinct variety broadly characterized by a large size, extremely vigorous, hardy, self-sterile, light producing and irregular bearing tree. The nut matures under the ecological conditions described in mid August, with the harvest date on Aug. 10, 2013. The tree is most useful for a commercial rootstock, which has shown to be compatible with all tested almonds. The tree has a strongly developed root system and has shown to be very drought tolerant, very tolerant to excess rain and irrigation, and somewhat resistant to nematodes while having an unknown susceptibility to crown rot, oak root fungus, crown gall, and bacterial canker. As a rootstock, the tree supports very heavy production from budded commercial almond varieties.
