Nectarine - Goldmine (Grafted)

Firefly's Edible Fruits
Update: 3621 days 12hrs

Comments: -

Planted this white fleshed variety before I realised I much prefer the taste of yellow nectarines. I keep it because it's one of the few mature(ish) trees I have that gives lots of fruit.

Fruiting Months January and December

Growing: In the Ground

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Pollination: Self Pollination

Pest Control:

Fruit flies love it. Tried using wax paper exclusion bags during the 08/09 season. Either the bags fell off or I couldn't close them properly so flies still got in. Plan on using a flyscreen tent for 09/10 season.
