Prunus persica 'Goldmine'
Goldmine nectarines adorn beautifully ornamental pink blossoms in spring. This tree is very hardy and spreads with age. However, nectarines are not dependable fruit producers in our area because of our short growing season. Late frosts in spring, cool night temperatures and early frosts in fall all contribute to the short timing of our growing season. When the trees do develop fruit, the Gold Mine nectarine is medium to large, and the skin is blushed red over white. The flesh is white freestone and is of excellent flavor. Goldmine nectarines were initially discovered in New Zealand in the 19th century.
