Nectamonds: Nectarine x Almond hybrid

These are my latest fruit, my Nectamonds. They are a cross between Flavor Top Nectarine, pollen parent, x F1 Nonpareil Almond, seed parent.

One of the trees seems sterile, it produces flowers but no stigma. The second tree also produces 90% sterile flowers.


Interesting cross there. Is the goal a larger fruit with an edible nut? or just crossed to see if you could?

My goal is to create drought-resistant rootstocks.




It will be interesting to see how the fruit develops.

It looks very almondy so far. Check out the Spanish Garnem and the French GF. They both do well with drought, and almond by itself is the most drought tolerant rootstock I have ever seen. In the very difficult arid areas, you just plant the seed in winter and forget it.
