I live here in Salem Oregon and I will do just about anything to get some red fleashed nectarines to grow from seeds. We have nothing here in Oregon or the states. I would like to grow true seeds. Can anyone help?

Not sure where those would come from, but welcome to the forum from a former Oregonian.

Welcome to 'Virtual' new Zealand...

Your red fleshed nectarines sound interesting, but I've never seen them here.

We have a wonderful very dark red fleshed peach known as 'Black-Boy'.

The skin is almost black and the flesh almost as dark.

These were introduced by early settlers in the 1800s and are commonly found in old farm orchards, but seldom marketed. Once they are ripe they are very soft so really have no shelf life. the usual harvest method is to stand under the tree and gorge yourself until bloated with dark red blood-like juice covering your face and running down your chin and belly.

These are a true heirloom species from before all the interference that has produced easy marketing varieties that remain firm for weeks but are generally tasteless.

Not sure about your bio-security controls regarding the importation of seed...? You may be able to have them fumigated on arrival if someone was to post you some...?

I have a red fleshed nectarine. It's an accidental hybrid from a white fleshed one and a black-boy peach. Has all the black-boy characteristics but a nectarine skin. Being freestone also an advantage and seems to throw true to type. Tree not very big yet.

Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

That sounds fantastic. As soon as it is big enough would you be interested in rooting some cuttings?

Don't know how successful those would be. Not big enough yet either. It was a good tree when transplanted, but the wind has caused a bit of dieback. The parent tree still at our old home we sold, so no access to it now. I did give one away to a former colleague, so that's a possibility

(I did have plans to register? patent? whatever that's called, but don't know how to go about it.

Looking at the information online, you need a few more trees first...as they might want some for their collection, or for you to have done a trial comparing yours with the most similar.

Could easily on to a winner I love black boy peaches stewed and on a shortcake. Is politically incorrect now maybe they should be renamed "peaches of colour".
