Independence Nectarine:

'Independence', is a white-fleshed fruit with deep red skin and has an excellent tangy sweet flavor. Independence is one of the best nectarines and is hardy to winter cold. Independence ripens very early in the season, well ahead of Redhaven peach. Most adaptable of all fruit trees for home gardens, Independence is a delightfully decorative tree that will produce frilly pink blossoms in the spring. Nectarines, like peaches, require well-drained soil and a regular fertilizing program.


The nectarine fruit is a variety of the peach tree. Nectarines and peaches are similar in appearance and color as they differ only by a single gene, the gene for skin texture. The peach is dull and fuzzy while the nectarine is smooth and shiny.
Flowers - raw or cooked. Added to salads or used as a garnish.   They can also be brewed into a tea.  The distilled flowers yield a white liquid which can be used to impart a flavor resembling the seed.
