Anyone in here is interested in breeding Nectarines with apricots?
This is my Nectarcot, a cross between Flavor Top Nectarine, seed parent, x F1 Moorpark Apricot, pollen parent. The seedling resembles exactly like a Nectarine tree.
Since it’s a hybrid, the leaves should look something between the two parents, however, they resemble like a nectarine tree. And this phenotype is not only inherited in my hybrids, but also in other hybrids from different breeders. This is a Nectarcot tree from a comercial grower from South Africa. Notice that the leaves don’t have any apricot phenotype in them
I have also seen a couple of peach x apricot hybrid trees from online European Nurseries that they resemble like a peach tree and not any apricot trait in their foliage.
So anyone in here could help me out to kill out my curiousity?
Can you breed a nectarine/peach with apricots to see if they resemble a nectarine/peach tree then post them on this topic?
