Here's a view from the south of my DWN Desert Dawn nectarine. About 1/3 of the flower buds are open, another 1/3 emerging, and the remaining 1/3 set.
Of the dozen fruit sets I permitted to mature on this young tree, 3 of them were ripe today. They are small fruits -- about 2 inches across. Not bad for a 1st year crop!
Did you like the taste and are they freestone (the description says "semi-freestone")?
In my opinion, a great tasting yellow nectarines for my low chill climate. The semi-freestone description is correct. They are not a cling fruit, closer to freestone.
Next victim of my summer pruning routine.
Still need to do some thinning
My Eva’s Pride has been in full bloom for 3 weeks and has set fruit. I am pretty sure I will not get any fruit this coming year. Super bummed out!
I really enjoy seeing the blooms this time of year. Even though it is far away here it is spring somewhere.
One pruned yellow nectarine.
