Red Fleshed Nectarines
« on: April 30, 2017, 11:03:44 AM »
I was wondering if anyone knew of any varieties that exist that you can actually get and grow in  the US?
I know of the Red Raspberry you can sometimes get from Raintree.


There is a commercial variety from France that sounds amazing called the Nectavigne


But other than these two varieties I can't find much else. 
Also I do know that some of the Zaiger Artic series have some red streaks but thats not quite the same.

Is this just a quality that people don't care about so no one breeds for it?

Both arctic Glo and Indian Free nectarine have red in their flesh similar to that and you should be able to get them here in the US.

I bought sunred or here in AZ at RSI.  Supposedly is delicious.  It is in dwarf rootstock, double grafted with Florida prince peach for pollination

I mentioned in my original post the Artic series does have some read streaks but again its not the same.

Indian Free is a peach, not a nectarine. Unfortunately 1. I don't like peach fuzz 2. Indian free needs way more chill hours than i get.

Anfic used to list two red fleshed nectarines in their resesrch inventory. I asked about them and the man who replied told me they had high acid flesh and had little commercial potential.
