Description: ‘Gulfcrimson’ is the third in a series of cultivars released and patented by the joint UF, UGA, and USDA-ARS stone fruit breeding program, specifically in 2009. ‘Gulfcrimson’ fruit are large for an early-ripening cultivar and have a yellow ground color with 80–90% red skin. ‘Gulfcrimson’ ripens with the standard peach cultivar ‘June Gold’ in Attapulgus, Georgia, with an FDP of 95 days and highly consistent cropping, making it a good mid-season replacement for ‘June Gold’. It also crops reliably in north Florida.
