First and only Nectarine

For those of you who haven’t followed our garden this year, we brought home 6 fruit trees in the spring, one of which is a lovely dwarf nectarine tree. There was a single nectarine growing when we got it and FINALLY about 2 weeks ago the tiny little guy was ripe. I had been keeping an eye on it as August was quickly passing by and while examining it, it fell off into my hand.

This was our only fruit from the six trees this year. Compared to a full size apple you can see how petite it is. I wish I had taken a picture of it cut open. This was probably the most juicy, sweet, delicious nectarine I’ve ever had. The skin was tender and at the peak of ripeness…all around perfection. Maybe I’m a bit partial because it came from my own garden but thats part of gardening, right? 🙂
