Nectrines

    6 responses

Peter J Adams starts with ...
my first crop of nectrines are plentiful
but small and tend to be not sweet at all. (Tarty/sour) I kept water and fertilizer up to them. Could you have a guess as to what I did wrong.
Kind Regards,
Peter Adams.

Too much water dilutes the sugars. I haven't watered mine since flowering. But the rain we have had recently as the fruit mature is not conducive to high brix fruit. All the potash in the world won't help.

Could have something to do with the age of your tree, more established trees often have better fruit. I think though you may have not thinned your fruit enough; nectarines and peaches are precocious and set too many fruit, that if not thinned (about 8-10cm apart), will be numerous but small and ordinary tasting. Better off having fewer but really good ones.

I thinned my nectarines but now I am thinking I should have thinned them more. They are rock hard and still about the diameter of a 20 cent piece, is it too late to thin them more or should I just leave them?

I don't know what's normal development in your growing conditions, and the variety you have.

I have 3 varieties of peaches, one which is almost near the end of its season, one starting to be ready now, and one with fruit the size of what you're describing, ( but I can see they're growing so all's good.) So there is some variability.

As an experiment you could further thin a few select branches, and compare development of the fruit.

Also any one variety can vary from year to year according to seasonal conditions that year.
