Flatto Peach ‘Sweet Bonnet’, Flatto Peach ‘Sweet Cap’ and Flatto Nectarine ‘Button Bright’ are three new fruit tree varieties – and we have two prize packs of each tree (that’s three fruit trees per prize pack) to give away, courtesy of our fabulous friends at Waimea Nurseries. Never tried a Flatto fruit before? Here’s a rundown on each variety.
Flatto Peach ‘Sweet Bonnet’ produces large crops of sweet, tasty, yellow-fleshed fruit in early to mid February. And because they’re ‘flat’ the fruit can easily be added to your kids’ lunch boxes without getting squished (the same goes for the other two varieties). The stone is easily removed too – just push the centre of the fruit and it pops out. How clever is that?!
Flatto Peach ‘Sweet Cap’ is a white-fleshed variety with excellent flavour. It’s delicious when eaten crunchy and equally tasty when left to soften slightly. Fruit ripens from late January to mid February.
Flatto Nectarine ‘Button Bright’ is the first nectarine in the Flatto range, its yellow-fleshed fruit produced mid to late February. It’s deliciously sweet and tasty; both kids and adults will love it.
Grown exclusively by Waimea Nurseries, Flatto Peach ‘Sweet Bonnet’, Flatto Peach ‘Sweet Cap’ and Flatto Nectarine ‘Button Bright’ are available from garden retailers nationwide.
