The Q&A Archives: Nectarine Trees

Question: We have an apparent healthy looking nectarine tree whose fruit remains 1

Answer: If your tree has produced fruit before, I'd chalk it up to stressful growing conditions. If the tree has never produced fruit, it's probably too young, and when it matures it will be able to fully develop fruit. Here's some background information: Nectarines are just fuzzless peaches. They do well in most of California if given the proper growing conditions. Nectarines require very well-drained soils, abundant nitrogen fertility, plenty of summer water, fruit thinning, and pest control sprays to prevent peach leaf curl and brown rot. Nectarines (like peaches) are self-fruitful and do not require a pollenizer tree. Just continue to give your tree TLC and it should eventually develop fruit for you. Best wishes with your nectarine tree.
