Peach and nectarine trees

Advantages

  • Accelerates production (2nd year)
  • Pedestrian orchard
  • Full or partial mechanical thinning and pruning possible
  • Faster, cheaper harvesting
  • Maturity and harvesting up to a half-week earlier (RP-40)
  • Increased fruit size and color (RP-20 & 40)
  • Increased efficiency of phytosanitary treatments

 

Technical aspects

  • Density: 3.6 m x 1.2 m.
  • Rootstock: ROOTPAC-40 (early yield and increased fruit size) and ROOTPAC-20 (less vigor)
  • Production structure: central axis (2.5 m high)
  • Trellis: 2 wires (1st at 1 m, 2nd at 2 m)
  • Adaptable to mechanical pruning and thinning
  • Pedestrian orchard; harvesting from the ground
