AC Episkopi Nectarines

Nectarine (PRUNUS PERSICA NECTARINA) originated from the ocular mutation of peach. It is not much different from peach except its external appearance due to the absence of fluff.

Appears in the Diocese later than peaches, during the 1960s. Nectarine flourishes like peach in areas with dry and warm climate.

The model of harvesting is the same as peaches with the amount of production to be placed on the domestic market directly placed in crates and the remainder undergoing the sorting, sorting and packaging processes in the Cooperative’s electronic calibrator.
