Neutral smiln32 On Dec 19, 2004, smiln32 from Oklahoma City, OK (Zone 7a) wrote:

This tree produces fruit that is medium sized and round. The flesh is yellow and firm. The skin is yellow with a red blush. Semi-freestone. The tree is very vigorous and productive. A nectarine tree sometimes will set more fruit than it is capable of successfully carrying to maturity. Branches may break and the fruits typically have poor color and taste. In order to rectify this situation, excess fruits must be removed or thinned. Hand-thin the tree about 4 weeks after full bloom.

Very low chilling requirement: 200-300 hours.
