Fruit Trees

Beating the Fruit Flies

I have picked my first perfect nectarines, with no fruit fly grubs in them and no beak marks from anything wanting to test the fruit first. My first two fruits to come out of the bags are perfect and twice the size of the fruits that the king parrots are feeding on. The parrots are daily visitors to my tree and have not yet touched any of the fruits in the bags, they are happy at the top of the tree while my bagged fruits are ripening below them.


  1. What variety are they? Fruit fly pressure builds up as the season progressesm . Let us know how things are in Jan.

  2. They are the variety Sunraycer which is a delicious orange fleshed fruit, they will finish fruiting in November.
