My nectarine tree is loaded with fruit this year but the fruit has gummy sap leaking out of it. What is causing this and how can I correct the problem?
Marilyn C on Jul 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Nectarine fruit "oozing" is caused by a couple of major offenders. First, be sure your tree is getting enough - but not too much - water. The oozing could also be caused by: frost damage last spring, which creates tiny cracks in the fruit; fruit moths, borers or stink bugs. A lack of nutrients could also be the culprit, but don't fertilize now. A regular spraying program earlier in the year will stop the pests, if they're the culprit. If you cut open some of the fruit and find bugs, you can try this organic spray: //www.starkbros.com/products/tools-and-supplies/pest-and-disease-controls/bonide-citrus-fruit-and-nut-orchard-spray Hopefully that will save some of your crop.

Slowly making it
This tree bloomed the first summer even had a tiny fruit but I picked it off because the tree is still looking small and little to no growth so far. Hope it will begain to get stronger soon. I have used fruit stakes to feed it. It was packaged well and came on time only 4 stars because its small.

Pretty tree
I bought this tree in 2015 and it bloomed nicely every year and put on fair growth last season; looks like I will have a small crop this season. I cant wait ! Yum-Yum

In early March my tree had a handfull of beautiful pink blooms. I purchased the Supreme Dwarf, which at the moment is a stocky stick with lots of leaves and 2 nectarines the size of my thumb nail! So far, so good. Even if the little fruits fall off, it has brought me joy. Thank you!

Gold nectarine
unfortunately neither of the two plantings has leafed out. While they were fine looking stock they did not appear to have any viable leaf buds and remain bare stems at this point - having been planted 8 to 10 weeks ago. Disappointing. Two plum trees planted at the same time with the same watering and in the "same" location are nicely growing.
