50 Different Nectarine Tree Varieties

With the exception of one gene, nectarines are genetically identical to peaches. The main difference is that nectarine trees produce smooth fruit, while peaches are fuzzy. Nectarines are also more sensitive than peaches and can easily be bruised or damaged. They are smaller and have a redder color than peaches. However, the variation in hue is most likely owing to nectarines’ lack of fuzz.

Nectarines were first cultivated around 2,000 years ago in China. They were created by a spontaneous mutation from a peach. Nectarines were farmed in Persia after spreading from China across Western Asia. Nectarines were brought to Greece and Rome, Italy from Persia. They did not reach Northern Europe and England until the 16th century. The Spanish were the first to bring nectarines to America. They were planted in California, where they thrived and are still growing today.

They come in two variants, just like other stone fruits: clingstones and freestones. The flesh of clingstone nectarines clings to the pit, whereas the flesh of freestone nectarines easily separates from the pit. Both types are juicy and delicious. So, if you are looking for fresh and appetizing fruits, planting a nectarine tree in your garden may be a good idea.  

Nectarine trees do well in areas with a cool winter season. They go dormant for a period of time every year. The trees survive for about 40 years and can reach a height of 30 feet in the wild. In orchards, however, trees are kept at the height of roughly 12 feet to make harvesting easier. The fruit is generally plucked before it ripens completely to make sure you have plenty of time to enjoy it.

Growing a nectarine tree from seed takes three to four years to produce fruits, same as most other stone fruit trees, including cherry trees, plum trees, and apricot trees. However, purchase a young tree from your local nursery to put in your home garden can produce quicker results. Ready to grow a nectarine tree in your garden or backyard?
