  2. Sexton (PP#16,496)

    Sexton (PP#16,496)

    Released in 2004 by University of California. Sexton has high yields on young trees and a harvest date around a week before Chandler. It is 100% fruitful on laterals with abundant male and female flowers. Potential pollinators are Howard, Tulare and Chandler. The nut is round with a good shell seal. The kernel is light colored and makes up more than 50% of the nut weight. The tree has a weeping habit and is medium in size, making it a good candidate for hedgerow plantings.

  3. Solano (PP#25,466)

    Solano (PP#25,466)

    This variety harvests early to mid season with light colored kernerls, high yield, large nuts and solid attractive shells. Solano has leafing, flowering, and harvest dates that are very similar to Vina, but has better kernel color and tree structure. Due to its male-first blooming habit and later leafing date, it should be less susceptible to blight and of particular interest to growners in the Sacramento Valley. Pollinators include Tulare, Chandler and Howard.

  4. Sunland

    Sunland

    Harvests mid to late. Introduced in 1979 by the University of California. Leafing is 2 days after Payne. Shows potential high productivity (80%–90% lateral bud fruitfulness). Nut is very large with very good shell seal. Tree is moderate size at maturity, however, quite vigorous when young. Suitable pollinators include Chico and Tehama.
  5. Tehama

    Tehama

    Harvests early to mid. Introduced by University of California. Heavy yielding variety. Leafs 11 days after Payne. Nut is large with a fair shell seal. Tree is large and somewhat upright. Used mostly as a pollinator.
  6. Tulare (PP#8,268)

    Tulare (PP#8,268)

    Introduced by University of California. Harvests mid to late. Leafs approximately 12 days after Payne. Blooms late. Displays high production potential. Nut is large and well sealed. Kernel crack-out is approximately 53% with kernel color at 85% light. Tree is upright with moderate vigor. Potential hedgerow variety. Tulare’s pollen shedding appears to overlap a large percentage of the female bloom. 72% of its lateral buds are fruitful.
  7. Vina

    Vina

    Harvests early to mid. Productivity is high to very high with 80% to 90% fruitful lateral buds. Leafing date is seven days after Payne. Nut is medium with good shell seal. Tree is vigorous with size rated at small to medium. Possible pollinators include Chico, Tehama, Howard and Chandler.

Harvest dates shown are approximate for Fresno and will vary with season and location.
