Prunus persica Firebrite - Firebrite Nectarine

Firebrite Nectarine

Prunus persica 'Firebrite'

Firebrite nectarine is an early-maturing variety with a yellow, semi-cling flesh with a bright red skin over a golden yellow background. The tree is moderately vigorous and highly productive with a good resistance to bacterial spot. Firebrite ripens near Redhaven peach time.

One of the many USDA introductions from California coming to us about 1969.

Nectarines are self-fertile and can be planted by themselves. Treat a nectarine just like peaches when growing. Thin early and agressively for good size. Prune every year to maintain vigor. You should seek to get between 1-3 feet of new growth a year. Over, 3 feet and you are probably fertilizing too much.
