Wonderful blossom. Is supposed to be hardy to WA.  It has attempted to set fruit quickly. I have removed all fruit as plants are young and need to establish roots rather than fruit

flowers and leaves emerged in July - I've left the fruit on as the tree is growing rapidly ... it is a prolific cropper and at 1.5m and 12 months in the ground I'd estimate there are over 80 fruit per plant after thinning! Unfortunately the fruit-fly struck so I had to collect all the fruit and pack it tightly into a bucket and 'drown' the fruit fly for a month before the muck was composted (fruit fly can be drowned when the fruit is underwater for over a week and the top of the water covered with a layer of vegetable oil to stop oxygen getting in).

These guys really struggled with the 2011 summer and lost most of their leaves. I'm hoping that autumn comes soon so they can recover.

Plants recovered in autumn and required substantial pruning. Leaves were removed in June 2011 to encourage dormancy

Jan 2012 - once again fruit fly were about earlier than expected so the entire crop (sans one bag) was picked and treated to prevent re-infection. Delicious crop ... but nectarines are not suited to Perth as they are too susceptiable to fruit fly. The destruction methods and spraying has prevented fruit fly being observed anywhere else - but I fear untended trees in the district are breeding zones for this pest.

May 2012 - leaves removed by hand, heavy pruning. This may reduce fruit, but hopefully will improve shape and relieve some stress (as the plants were very prone to disease over summer and leaves were quite pale)

spores will be in cracks in the bark and also the soil. Reinfestation likely without autumn sprays and/or pre bud burst spray. since you have many trees that can be affected, I'd recommend you spray rather than suffer major outbreak

This tree is covered in beautiful flowers in late winter. The fruit can be small (unless aggressively thinned) and is prone to QLD fruit fly. We will probably replace these trees with a dwarf variety (that can be more easily netted) in years to come...

Planted November 2009 and looking very healthy with lots of new growth.  If it is as good as my peach trees I will be very happy. I would expect some fruit in first season.

Oh dear, all the rain we have had has taken its toll.  Wel have had to dig this tree up and re-plant in a mound as it got so water-logged.  I have cut it right back to try to reduce the stress.  Very disappointing as it was about 5ft high and looking so good.  Hopefully it will survive.

Recovered beautifully.  Lots of new growth but no flowers.  It didn't lose its leaves like the other temperate fruit tree so I will be interested to see if it flowers.
