‘Hahong’ is a new nectarine cultivar from the Rural Development Administration’s National Institute of Horticultural & Herbal Science breeding program, which has been in operation since 1962. ‘Hahong’ is a midseason nectarine that produces large, attractive, and yellow sweet fruit for the fresh market. The cultivar should be widely adapted to wherever peaches and nectarines are grown to provide growers with an alternative to ‘SunGlo’ that has superior fruit quality, particularly in terms of fruit size and sweetness. In 2009, Plant Variety Protection rights were granted in the Republic of Korea.
