Chabacano nectarine

My mom got a Chabacano nectarine tree, today. I don't know anything much about the breed. So, one moment while I search.

Welp, I found nothing, except that Chabacano is a Spanish word for apricot, and for some other stuff. It's not an apricot tree; so, I'm hoping it's not a Spanish word for nectarine, too (I mean, it could just be a translation, rather than the breed name). I don't know if it's freestone or cling.

The tag implies that fresh eating is one of its intended uses, however: "… Sweet, juicy fleshed fruits are favorites for eating fresh." It also says it's cold hardy for -20° to -10° F. (Which is less cold hardy than ideal, but it'll hopefully live its full span.) Average height x width: 12' tall by 12' wide.

Apparently, there were a few tags on the tree. I missed one. Here it is:



So, the variety's name is really Red Gold. It's freestone. Semi-dwarf. Hardy to zone 5. It says it's a good shipping variety.

I'm guessing Chabacano is just another Spanish word for nectarine.

My mom decided where to plant the tree and planted it, today (she wasn't sure where to put it for quite a while). Hopefully it's not too late. The fruit is supposed to ripen in the middle of August.
