Gold Mine

Regular price $28.00 Sale

A New Zealand nectarine with white, not yellow flesh as suggested by the name, Gold Mine was a staple nectarine of California home gardens of the past century.  Introduced in the 1920s, Gold Mine quickly became a favorite in the small nectarine market because its fruits were entirely covered with red, and its juicy, slightly greenish flesh was rich in both sugar and acid.  Largely planted in interior southern California in the 1930s, Gold Mine gradually disappeared from the commercial markets upon introduction of Fred Anderson's yellow clingstone progeny of Le Grand.  Now we alone offer it.  It remains a valid freestone nectarine to follow Le Grand.  End August.  500 hours.  On Lovell.
