Late nectarine ripens in Georgia in September. Gocha Gviniashvili, who manages 150 hectares of orchards and grows apples, plums and cornelian cherries, has also planted 12 different varieties of nectarine on 15 hectares in Gori, Shida Kartli region.
Peach and nectarine are mainly grown in Eastern Georgia – in the Kakheti region – and the main harvest is in July-August, EastFruit experts note . But the grower decided to change the tradition and offer a completely new variety for this market, which ripens in mid-September.
Pit Stop is an Italian variety with low acidity, high sugar content (brix 10-15), dark color and a rich yellow flesh. In addition, this variety has a good shelf life. At this stage, the grower is selling on the local market, but in the future he does not exclude the exports of this variety.
According to the grower, “Once you try this variety, you will realize that everything you ate before was not a nectarine.”
