Canned clingstone peaches or canned "solid-pack” clingstone peaches that fall into this classification shall not be graded above U.S. Grade C or U.S. Grade C Solid-Pack, whichever is applicable, regardless of the total score for the product (this is a limiting rule). "Fairly good color” means that the peaches possess a color that may fail to meet minimum color requirements for Grade B, but is equal to or better than greenish-yellow; that the units may possess slight discoloration due to oxidation, pit pigmentation or other causes which do not materially affect the appearance or edibility, or both, of the product; and that the units may possess other color as follows:

(2) In the style of dice or mixed pieces of irregular sizes and shapes, not more than 10 percent, by weight, of the drained peaches may consist of units that fail to meet the minimum color for grade C or may be off-color: Provided, That such units do not materially affect the appearance of the product.

try. (a) General. The factor of uniformity of size and symmetry for mixed pieces of irregular sizes and shapes of canned clingstone peaches and all applicable styles of canned "solid-pack" clingstone peaches is not based on any detailed requirements and is not scored; the other three factors (color, absence of defects, and character, as applicable) are scored and the total is multiplied by 100 and divided by 80, dropping any fractions to determine the total score.

(b) Off-suture cuts. “Off-suture cut" in halved or quartered canned clingstone peaches means a halved or quartered unit which has been cut at a distance from the suture greater than three-eighths inch at the widest measurement from the suture.

(c) Partially detached or detached piece. A “partially detached or detached piece" in halved canned clingstone peaches means a unit which has the appearance of a slice resulting from an off-suture cut or from improper cutting and which may or may not be attached to the half from which cut. In determining the applicable allowances in terms of percentage by count, a partially detached piece together with the half to which it is partially attached is considered as one unit or a detached piece with the half from which detached or together with any other half is considered as one unit.

(d) Partial slice. A “partial slice” in the style of slices is a unit that has had the semblance of a slice with respect to thickness and shape but is less than three-fourths of an apparent full slice and that does not bear marks of crushing. In determining the allowances in terms of percentage by count, partial slices aggregating the equivalent of an average size slice shall be considered as one unit.

(e) Sliver. A "sliver" in the style of slices is a sector that is substantially smaller than the general size of slices or that weighs 3 grams or less.

(f) Slab. A "slab” in the style of slices is a portion of a unit which does not conform to the shape of a definite slice due to improper cutting.

(g) “AClassification. Halves, quarters, slices, dice, or whole canned clingstone peaches that are practically uniform in size and symmetry may be given a score of 18 to 20 points. "Practically uniform in size and symmetry" has the following meanings with respect to the following styles of canned clingstone peaches:

(1) Halves, quarters, and whole. The units are very symmetrical and the weight of the largest full-size unit does not exceed the weight of the smallest full-size unit by more than 40 percent; the weight of each half is not less than three-fifths oz; the weight of each quarter is not less than threetenths oz; and not more than 10 percent, by count, of the units in the style of halves or quarters may possess offsuture cuts or partially detached or detached pieces, or any combination thereof. One unit in a container is permitted to possess an off-suture cut or partially detached or detached piece if such unit exceeds the allowance of 10 percent, by count: Provided, That in all containers comprising the sample such units do not exceed an average of 10 percent of the total number of units.

(2) Slices. Not more than a total of 5 percent, by count, of the units may be partial slices, slivers, and slabs: Provided, That not more than 242 percent, by count, are slabs; and excluding partial slices, slivers, and slabs that may be present, the variation is size and symmetry of the other units does not affect more than slightly the appearance of the product.

(3) Dice. Not more than 10 percent, by weight, of the drained clingstone peaches may be units that are more than three-fourths inch in their greatest edge dimension or are of such size as to pass through a five-sixteenth inch square opening.

(h) “BClassification. Halves, quarters, slices, dice, or whole canned clingstone peaches that are reasonably uniform in size and symmetry may be given a score of 16 or 17 points. “Reasonably uniform in size and symmetry" has the following meanings with respect to the following styles of canned clingstone peaches.

(1) Halves, quarters, and whole. The units are reasonably symmetrical and the weight of the largest full-size unit does not exceed the weight of the smallest full-size unit by more than 60 percent; the weight of each half is not less than three-fifths oz; the weight of each quarter is not less than threetenths oz; and not more than 20 percent, by count, of the units in the style of halves or quarters may possess offsuture cuts or partially detached or detached pieces, or any combination thereof. One unit in a container is permitted to possess an off-suture cut or partially detached or detached piece if such unit exceeds the allowance of 20 percent, by count: Provided, That in all containers comprising the sample such units do not exceed an average of 20 percent of the total number of units.

(2) Slices. Not more than a total of 10 percent, by count, of the units may be partial slices, slivers, and slabs: Provided, That not more than 5 percent, by count, are slabs; and excluding partial slices, slivers, and slabs that may be present, the variation in size and symmetry of the other unit does not more than materially affect the appearance of the product.

(3) Dice. Not more than 15 percent, by weight, of the drained clingstone peaches may be units that are more than three-fourths inch in their greatest edge dimension or are of such size as to pass through a five-sixteenth inch square opening.

(i) “CClassification. Halves, quarters, slices, dice, or whole canned cling. stone peaches that are fairly uniform in size and symmetry may be given a score of 14 or 15 points. Canned cling. stone peaches that fall into this classification shall not be graded above U.S. Grade B, regardless of the total score for the product (this is a partial limiting rule).
