Nectarines

Nectarines

Nectarines are produced throughout South Africa, but the bulk of production comes from the Western Cape. The trees are small with 4-8m in height and therefore ideal for a Mediterranean food forest.

Where do Nectarines grow?

Nectarines prefer a sunny warm and wind sheltered climate. They are less hardy than peaches. They strive in areas with hot summers.

Best flavour is attained when nectarines are left to fully ripen on the tree before picking.

Nectarine Trees have moderate wind tolerance

Our Nectarine Trees are still young but first harvests are to be expected in their year 2-4.
