Prunus persica nucipersica
( Redgold Nectarine )
|'Redgold' is suited to the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic, central Midwest and West. The fruit is a large freestone with deep red skin and gold-yellow flesh. Well flavored, midseason bearing. Disease resistance is fair.
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.
