Excellent eating fruit, a peach without the fuzz. Very vigorous. Similar to peach in cultural requirements. Requires pruning and thinning for consistent, quality crops. Dislikes high humidity. Moderate fertility and good drainage a must. Susceptible to peach leaf curl, brown rot, and oriental fruit moth.
All nectarines are semi-dwarf (8'-14') on Citation rootstock, except Harko which is on St Julian rootstock. Trees are 2 years old and should begin to fruit in their 3rd year.
For best success, be sure to choose a tree that will grow in your USDA zone, has an appropriate number of chill hours for your climate. If a pollinator is needed, make sure they're planted within 50 feet of each other and will bloom at the same time. Finally, what are your desired harvest intervals (all at once for canning or spread out for fresh eating)? Enjoy!
Pre-order to assure you’ll get the varieties you want!
Your order will ship out of our warehouse as soon as we receive your trees. (Dec-Jan). We cannot hold bare root items in CA, as they will begin to bud or flower. Once they break dormancy, they can no longer be shipped. We do not have the refrigerator capacity to hold all orders, which is why all trees will ship out as soon as we receive them. If you won’t be ready to plant when the trees arrive, watch our "Heeling in Bare Root Trees" video and learn how to keep your trees healthy until you are ready to plant.
