There will be Nectarines this Summer

You may remember back in April I shared this photo of nectarine blossom that I came across in the Botanic Gardens.

Prunus Persica

Well I was pleased to find on a recent trip back to the walled garden that now hanging happily from the branches along the wall are some big looking nectarine fruit! While the fruit were not close to being ripe you could see subtle hints of colour starting to appear on just one or two of the fruit!
