Comments: Needs 200 to 800 chilling hours to produce well. Nectarines always have to be picked ripe. They do not ripe well after they have been picked. You can keep nectarines for one to three days but you have to be very carefull, one small bruise and it will go bad on that spot. Nectarines are self-pollinating so it is ok to have just one tree.
