Pacific Pride Nectarine ™
Pacific Pride Nectarine ™, a selected seedling of Kreibich Nectarine, is a new variety that bears abundant crops of aromatic, delectably sweet and juicy, flavorful, white flesh Nectarines. Pacific Pride™ ripens about two weeks later than Kreibich, and holds up well in cold storage. Like Kreibich, it appears to be very resistant to Peach Leaf Curl.
