Treasures from the shed – part 1

Clearing out the tomato trough in the shed, I pulled up this weed . . .

Nectarine seedling

. . . and found the root connected to a seed which had fallen out of a fruit stone. It’s either an apricot or nectarine stone which must have found its way into our compost heap and then got transferred to the trough for growing tomatoes. I hurriedly potted it.

If this seedling grows, will it need a second plant for pollination to produce fruit?

  1. I can not answer that question, but very curious as to whether your little tree survived and if it is fruiting. I have a deep interest in Apricot and the kernels. Walter

    • Hello Walter. Apologies for the slow response. Yes, it is about 18 inches tall now. This year it did produce a flower, but no fruit so far.


Good to see you. Glad if you would comment
