Sometimes you end up having to beg people to take them, because fruits can only stay fresh for so long. Even though it might seem like such a wonderful problem to have, it isn't, because sometimes you'll have to throw them out if you can't find anyone to give them to. I can hear you guys already, why don't I can it? Unless I have another refrigerator, I don't have any desire to start a massive chore, and the bosses of the house don't eat canned nectarines. Another nice thing about growing your own fruits is that there is no pesticide and you know exactly how it got there, but you do have to make sure that the tree is free of any disease.
In the pictures below, you can see a couple of the branches snapped, even after I took many of the baby nectarines off in the spring. The left behind fruits were still too heavy for the branches. Nevertheless, the breakage, my severe trimmings never seemed to bother it, or keeps it from doing so magnificently.
