Pineapple Nectarine

Nectarine

Description: Pineapple is a clean pale skinned variety with yellow melting flesh and rich aromatic flavours, slightly reminiscent of a sprightly pineapple which is where it's name comes from. An early ripening nectarine, so not ideal to plant outdoors. A traditional English variety that's best eaten straight from the tree.

History: Originated from the Rivers of Sawbridgeworth in Hertfordshire in the late 19th century.

Nectarine Growing Tips: Tolerant to neutral, clay, loam and sandy soils but prefers well drained and moderately fertile. Best planted in a sunny location; on a sheltered wall or under glass or polythene to protect it from frost.
