Georgia: Nectarine season goes on thanks to Italian Pit Stop variety

Peaches and nectarines are mainly grown in Eastern Georgia, in the Kakheti region; the main harvest is in July-August. But Gocha Gviniashvili, who manages 150 hectares of orchards and grows apples, plums and cornelian cherries, 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. This variety has a good shelf life as well. At this stage, the grower is selling on the local market, but he hopes to be able to export this variety in the future.
