I live in northern Arizona and have a small vineyard (200+ plants) and would like to know if my grape vines would be compatible with semi-dwarf nectarines planted every third row as a row of fruit trees then grapes and so on? The nectarines do well where I am and so do the grapes; however, on occasion the grapes need some shade in the heat of the afternoon when the grapes are on.
