Perhaps the most popular white peach of the 1950s, 'Nectar' has vanished from the nursery lists of today. A seedling of 'Stanwick' discovered by Oliver Blackburn of Bakersfield, introduced into commerce by California Nursery Company in 1935. It was much planted during the World War and after, and was nearly the only white peach available to a generation of postwar Americans. A smallish fruit, white marked with violet, flesh also marked with violet around the pit, absent of acid and so seeming immensely sweet. It is our first choice of peach to top the morning cereal. Mid August. On Lovell.
