Nectarines are smooth-skinned peaches, needing similar cultivation, although they prefer more warmth and plenty of water while the fruit is swelling. They train well as fans on walls and fences, and may also be grown in containers or under glass. Covering plants with polythene in spring protects the blossom and also deters peach leaf curl. Like all stone fruits, they should be pruned between early spring and mid-autumn, when wounds heal quickly. 'Lord Napier' is an old prolific variety with richly flavoured white-fleshed fruit, especially under glass. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
