Maria's Gold Nectarine TM/Lovell
The pure golden skin and flesh of this juicy richly flavored nectarine have a delicious balance of sweetness and acidity. It is named after Russian horticulturist Dr. Maria Plekhanova and selected by Andy Mariani from seeds brought back from Uzbekistan.
It is typical of the exotic fabled 'Golden Peaches of Samarkand.' A $1 royalty is included for the California Rare Fruit Growers hybridizer's group which is dedicated to developing superior stone fruit varieties for home gardeners.
