Nectarine tree

fruitluvr13(SoCal 10)June 15, 2012

Hi I'm new here

I have a nectarine tree that wasn't doing so well. It is now making a comeback but some off the branches have very different leaves then the rest of the tree. At first I thought that the branch was a weed growing really close to the tree but upon closer inspection I don't think that is the case.

I'm pretty sure the tree is grafted so might it be a branch from the rootstock. What do you guys think. Sorry for my lack of knowledge but I'm new at this. Thank you in advance.

Yes, that is likely a sprout from the rootstock. Usually I cut them off unless I might want to graft or bud onto that tree later. Then I just keep the sprout pruned back.
