The Nectarine Nectared, Prunus persica nuciperscia 'Nectared', will bear large crops of sweet tasting fruit. Along with the fruit you will enjoy the fragrant flowers it produces. The Nectared blooms in mid-spring and requires full sun for maximum production. Nectared produces succulent red fruit with a red skin and yellow flesh. Well drained soil is essential.
The nectarine fruit is a variety of the peach tree. Nectarines and peaches are similar in appearance and color as they differ only by a single gene, the gene for skin texture. The peach is dull and fuzzy while the nectarine is smooth and shiny. Nectarines contain a good amount of vitamins A and C.
