Years ago growing nectarines, peaches and apricots used to be considered difficult for many gardeners. But times have changed and with a warmer climate and modern breeding, it's never been easier to grow your own mouth-watering stone fruits that can be harvested from August.
This variety is self-fertile and does not require a pollination partner.
Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 4 years.

Fruit trees do not suffer weed competition well. Keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of base of the tree. In spring, while the ground is moist, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost around the base of the tree, taking care not to mound it up against the stem. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer. Feed and water regularly during particularly dry periods.
Apricots, nectarines and peaches may be fan trained against a wall or grown as a bush. When pruning it is important to avoid winter pruning as this leaves them prone to silver leaf disease.
To bush train: In the first spring after planting, select 3 or 4 well spaced branches on a clear trunk of at least 75cm (29"), and shorten them by two thirds. Remove the central stem to just above the highest of the selected branches. Remove any laterals below the selected branches. In the following spring, select 3 or 4 sub laterals on each branch and shorten these by half to create a balanced, open framework. In future years these trees will require only occasional pruning to remove damaged, badly placed or diseased wood. This should be carried out during April. Heavy crops should be thinned when they reach walnut size to reduce stress upon the branches
