Spotty (but delicious) nectarines

Fruit, Summer

February 6, 2011

Our nectarines this year are a bit spotty, but delicious none the less.

We have a bumper crop of nectarines this year on our tree, and we have just started harvesting them.  Unfortunately (and I never thought I would say this in February – our hottest month) we have had too much rain and like the grapes I have mentioned elsewhere, they are suffering from some fungal spots.

So far though it doesn’t seem to have affected the crop or the taste.  I guess we will just have to wait and see if it has any effect on the keeping.  Not that nectarines are a crop to try and store anyway.  They are one best eaten immediately in all their soft ripe glory – yum!
