New Dwarf Nectarines x 4

    7 responses

Guys

Planet have released 4 x new semi dwarf nectarines suitable for varying chill and maturity dates.

My local bunnings got them today.

As usual stuff all info on the plantnet website.

There are some curious comments about "we made a current variety smaller" so methinks they are not genetic dwarfs but on the dwarfing pumiselect rootstock.

Any idea of chill hours for any of these - I noticed the Crimson Baby which is apparently from California (Fresno I think it said) and the Tuscany was a French nectarine. But no mention of chill hours (something sadly missing from the PlantNet labels)

Thought I'd post my experience with the Crimson Baby. I bought one last year from Dawsons in Swanbourne and got over 30 fruit in first season. Regretfully plucked every peice of fruit off but was very happy to see so much fruit so early!
Was so happy I went and bought another 2 different Plantnet trees last week. Both dwarf peaches - Fresno and O'Henry.
Will report back later this year.

Hi Wazzbat,

How are your Crimson Baby, and Fresno and O'Henry plants coming along? How big are they and how are they fruiting?

Thanks,
Cain

Hi Cain and Jimmy.

My Crimson Baby didn't get much fruit this year but I did prune it a bit late I think? I plucked them all off again and let it shoot away a bit more, as it did beautifully. I had enough fruit (over 60) on my Nectazee. But next year I will have to protect them all from fruit fly!!!

The Fresno and O'Henry both produced a few fruit but again I plucked them off. They too have shot off really well and I have had to re stake all 3 plants this summer. They are all about 1m high now at a guess? I will prune them back hard again this year and hope for some fruit?

I really like the shape of these trees so if they don't produce much, I'll still be happy and at least I won't have to control the flies. But I think they will do well anyway?

Good Luck.
