homegrown nectarines

June 7, 2016

These are our first homegrown white nectarines. They’re a variety called Arctic Star. We have a tiny sampling of plums, peaches, and nectarines coming in. This batch was mildly sweet, but the first fruits aren’t usually expected to have that wow factor. We’re hoping that as the tree continues to mature, our enjoyment will elevate, as it produces the low acid, super sweet flavors that are to be expected with this variety .

Some of our plums on the other hand… oh they taste like candy. I’ll be sure to share those with you too (if I’m able to contain myself and snap a picture before I eat them).

    Your tree looks diseased.

      We’ve had a tree specialist come out and just check things out and he said it’s a superficial thing and nothing to worry about. Do you have any expertise you care to share to combat this?
