Interpretive Summary: Mexican growers are interested in new commercial varieties of peaches currently being made available in the southeastern United States. These varieties are discussed in relation to their value in Mexico, hence the Spanish translation. The discussion relates type of fruit, chilling requirement and season of ripening for both public and patented varieties. Also discussed are new and upcoming rootstock materials being tested or used in the southeastern Unites States, such as Guardian, an ARS release now widely planted.
