Like Lord Napier, one of the few surviving of XIX Century English glasshouse nectarines. While intended at home for growing under artificial heat, here they grow and ripen fruits just fine on their own power. Skin ivory white with some green around the stem cavity, flesh white, pink near the pit, tart-sweet, semi-freestone. A variety from the Thomas Rivers nurseries, originally the earliest nectarine of the season. Some anecdotal evidence from long ago attributed adaptation to Southern California, but it was a very different world back then. Early July. 500 Hours. On Nemagard.
