Nectarine Trees

Nectarines are dying

Zone Northern California | dmberube added on May 1, 2014 | Answered

I have a 3 year old Nectarine tree in a pot. It looks healthy, has leaves, flowered and grew fruit. The fruit is about a quarter size or a little larger. They looked healthy up until about a week ago. Now they are shrinking and dying. The soil is about 2 years old. There are about 20 pieces of fruit. Some have already died and fallen off. Any help would be appreciated.
