A few words about the Rafale nectarine variety

Rafale is a yellow-flesh nectarine variety that is harvested in the middle of the season.

It originates from a random tree in our test fields. In one of our usual visits our fields we discovered one tree of this variety which we immediately imported in our commercial catalog because of its very good quality characteristics.

As a tree, it has semi-lateral behavior and medium-vigor growth. It can be planted in areas with middle chilling units. It flowers in the middle of the season and its flowering is abundant.

Fruit size is AAA/AA and fruit shape is elongated before maturing and round when it is ready to be harvested. Rafale is entering production rather fast and trees that are on the 2nd or 3d year they have a lot of fruits on them.

Its taste is very good, sub-acid with rich flavor and aroma.

Skin color is bright red to dark bright red on the largest part of it. It does not show any rust or other problems on the skin. It does not have a broken pit.

It is resistant to heavy rainfall problems as they were presented to other varieties harvested in the same time period the summer of 2020. Flesh firmness is very good and it can be on the trees for many days without an issue.
