  • Pruning: Nectarine trees need to be pruned to optimize fruit production and allow sunlight into the tree. Most home gardeners do not prune their trees enough. Pruning encourages new growth and shapes the tree. Prune nectarines hard, removing most of the previous year's growth. Fruit will be produced on the previous year's wood, so leave enough to ensure a good crop, but not overburden the tree. Removing interior branches opens up the tree and allows light to penetrate to lower branches.
  • Comments: One bite and Yumm Yumm is what you'll be saying about this new, smooth skinned white nectarine that combines the sweetness of a white peach with the sprightly, unparalleled flavor of fresh-from-the-tree nectarines.
