Arctic Rose White Nectarine
Nectarine-sweet with an apple-like crunch!
If you’ve ever bitten into an unripe nectarine, you discover quickly that you don’t want to do that again. The semi-sour taste is enough to put you off fruit for the rest of the summer. On the other hand, if you let a nectarine get too soft, then you have a whole ‘nother problem on your hands. Mushy nectarines are often so pungent-sweet that it sets your teeth on edge.
Well, we are happy to introduce you to Arctic Rose nectarine (Prunus persica var. nucipersica ‘Arctic Rose’). This medium-sized fruit is as crunchy as an apple when ripe but as sweet as a perfect summer nectarine should be. The firm flesh means that Arctic Rose keeps longer when picked, stands up to shipping (should you decide to send some to your friends who weren’t fortunate enough to get the memo that nectarines should be in every home garden) and keeps its shape when being baked into scrumptious pies.
The beautiful creamy-white flesh is covered in green skin blushed with deep red, which makes it as beautiful to look at as it is to taste.
You will love this delicious fruit. Make sure to add this to your home orchard (or use it to start your home orchard) this year!
