|Title: 'Sweet-N-Up,' A New Distinct Peach Variety|
US Patent Office Full Record
ARS horticulturists have developed a new and distinct peach variety called ‘Sweet-N-Up,’ which is suitable for all U.S. peach growing regions. These upright trees will allow commercial growers to plant approximately two times the number of trees per acre than are currently planted using standard trees. Since this semi-columnar tree produces narrow canopies, it can be planted at high densities without the need for intensive pruning to maintain them in their allotted spaces. ‘Sweet-N-Up’ is highly productive and produces sweet, flavorful dessert-quality peaches. The fruit is large in size and has an 80 percent red blush over a yellow background.
Commercial peach orchards or home fruit gardeners could use this technology.
