It’s a cross between a nectarine and a cling peach and it is awesome!
I initially thought given the name that it was a nectarine / apricot cross, but that is a ‘nectacot’, this is a necarcot (with a r) – so perhaps that is the difference. I intend to get to the bottom of this one.
I am a fruit bat, so got hugely excited when I saw these little golden numbers in woolies today and just had to buy.
I tend to think that we should leave things up to mother nature, but in the case of cross breeding fruit, I’m all for it (how else would we have a peppedew..although this is a cultivar of capsicum thus a vegetable, but you know what I mean?)
I recently tried a ‘grapple’ – which looks and has the texture of an apple but tastes like artificial grape bubblegum. weird.
The mind boggles thinking what they will create in the future. I for one am looking forward.
