Nectarine Varieties For New Jersey Commercial and Home Orchardists
Nectarines are identical to peaches except that they lack fuzz. Most management practices for nectarines are similar to those of peaches. However, pest management of nectarines is more difficult than it is with peaches because the fuzz on peaches acts as a protective barrier to many diseases and insects. Nectarines often require several more fungicide and insecticide sprays . Some nectarines varieties have thicker skin to offset some of these pest and environmental problems.
