In years past, we have offered the true 'Hemskerk', a fruit so close to 'Moorpark' that it was for many decades sold and planted as that variety, being more consistently productive because of its lower chill requirement and more evenly ripened fruit. Alameda Hemskirke is a supposed seedling of 'Hemskerk', probably of the second decade of the XX century, originated from the Decoto area of Alameda County, hence the name. Fruits are large, even massive, deep orange and rarely inclined to have a hard and green shoulder when the apex is soft-ripe. Flesh is dense, somewhat fibrous, exceedingly juicy and sweet, rich aroma. Good productivity, even commercial in quantity, though not all ripen at once. Hangs fairly well on the tree. Mid July, and later. 750 hours. On Citation.
