Prunus persica nucipersica
( Panamint Nectarine )
|'Panamint' is suited to California and the warmer areas in the Southeast. It does not require a heavy winter chill. The nectarines are medium to large, freestone, bright red with excellent flavor. Midseason bearing.
Most adaptable of all fruit trees for home gardens. When planting, they should be spaced to allow a spread of 20 to 25 feet. At 3 to 4 years of age, they begin to bear large crops and reach peak productivity at 8 to 12 years. To maintain size and encourage new growth, heavy pruning is needed. Nectarines, like peaches, require well-drained soil and a regular fertilizing program.
Peach leaf curl, peach tree borer, and curculio can be a problem.
Important Info : Most nectarine varieties are self fertile, not requiring a second tree.
