Snow Queen Nectarines Splitting
Last year, I planted a snow queen nectarine tree. It produced fruit this year for the first time (about 15), but all of the nectarines split. Most of the fruit split to the pit and turned brown inside. Is this typical of snow queen nectarines? Will the fruit split less as the tree matures?
I live near San Jose, Calif. I have been watering the tree about every other day, which is how much I water my two peach trees, and the peaches didn't split at all.
