    Where to grow: Peaches and nectarines are fairly fussy. They like winter chill but not long freezes or late-winter frosts. They also prefer it hot and at least somewhat dry in summer. It’s no wonder that California has great peach-growing areas, though peaches can be found growing throughout the U.S. in USDA zones 5 through 8 or 9.   Moreover, peach and nectarine exports in Spain exceeded the figures recorded by the world's second largest importer, Italy (X million USD), fourfold. It was followed by the United States with a share of X%. From to , an average annual growth rate of peach and nectarine exports in Spain was at +X%.

    White peaches and nectarines are not newfangled or genetically modified. They’re grown around the world, but until 20 years ago were mostly a niche fruit popular with home growers. In America, they date back to the colonies. Especially popular in the s was a white peach called the Belle of Georgia, which still exists today.   🚜 Do Other States Grow Them Besides California? Absolutely. Any place that grows peaches most likely as grows their smoother cousins. In most grocery stores across the country, the only nectarines you are going to see are California – they dominate the commercial nectarine market. On occasion I have seen Washington grown nectarines.

    All nectarines are grown in California; peaches come from 28 states, but more than half from California. The greatest demand for white-fleshed fruit is from Asia – used to be that more than 80% of the fruit . Peaches and Nectarines have the same requirment. Artic Star, is one of the best white nectarines for a mild-winter area. Gold Mine, Panamint, Silver Lode, Snow Queen and Sunred are all listed as low chill requirment Nectarines in the Western Garden Book.
