Mesembrine is a flat peach, with yellow flesh, which ripens in August - towards the end of the peach / nectarine season.  It has a balanced sweet-sharp flavour.

The deep pink blossom is also attractive in spring.

How to grow

As with all peaches and nectarines it helps if you can protect the tree from rain splashes over the winter, to avoid peach-leaf curl.
