Spicezee - Nectarine x Plum 5/10

Sandy31's Edible Fruits
Update: 333 days 18hrs

Comments: -

The first NectaPlum%uFFFD from Zaiger Genetics: a white-fleshed, nectarine-peach-plum hybrid. Skin is dark maroon at fruit set, and turns pale pink when ripe. Fully ripe fruit is unparalled in flavor, and both nectarine and plum traits are easily detectable. Very productive tree is also quite ornamental. Tremendous purplish pink bloom in the spring, followed by a flourish of red leaves which mature into lush green in late summer.

Planted as a DUO with Plum Luisa

Plethora of flowers but only 1-2 fruit set. This is year i only got 2 Peaches, they both are VERY BIG and exceptional quality My garden is Bee friendly and has many bee attracting plants and shrubs. Also fruit trees next to it ( Gulf gold Plum and Angel low chill peach ) they all get a heavy fruit set. so i am not concerned about pollination or pollinators. I do administer Winter dormancy spray ,when tree is dormant, with LIME SULFUR once every year but only when its dormant and not when in bud break or bloom. not sure why i may have a poor fruit set despite plethora of blooms ?

Fruited close to 20 peach in 2018, Nice tasty peach

Where are you located and is your tree fruiting? I've read that the plant only fruits (well) in tropical areas.
sandy31 says... [756 days 18hrs ago]
I m in Sydney west. I have several jambolan plum trees growing in in india on my farm. They usually fruit after 4..5 yrs of planting. Also i bought this as few days ago only and is growing in a pot. Need to wait 3..4 yrs for fruit though. Once its eastablished it should fruit as in syd weather. Not sure about melbourne though
