Flordaking

Industry standard for its season; early ripening (usually early May); large fruit; early bloom; light flower crop; poor color; high incidence of split pits.

Flordacrest

Excellent color; good shape; attractive; ripens about 1 week after Flordaking; fewer split pits but smaller fruit than Flordaking.

Gulfprince

Large fruit with non-melting flesh; excellent shape and flavor; ripens in late May-early June in north Florida. Currently, Gulfprince is suggested for trial for local markets only because of a possible storage disorder that may develop during packing and handling of fruit.
