NECTARINES
Prunus persica

Peaches and nectarines are the same species, Prunus persica, but nectarines differ from peaches in that they lack “peach fuzz.”



We specialize in new low-chill varieties of peaches and nectarines developed by the University of Florida that were specifically bred for the warm winters of the Deep South, from South Texas to coastal Carolina.  The white-fleshed variety Sunmist is especially sweet tasting, with lower acid than yellow-fleshed fruits.






We graft exclusively on nematode-resistant rootstock adapted to soils of the deep South.
