  • Height: 16 feet standard, 10 feet semi-dwarf.

  • Soil Requirements: Well-drained, fertile organic soil.
  • Growth Rate: Medium growth rate.
  • Pruning: Nectarine trees need to be pruned to optimize fruit production and allow light into the tree. Most home gardeners do not prune their trees enough. Pruning encourages new growth and shapes the tree. Prune nectarines hard, removing most of the previous year's growth. Fruit will be produced on the previous year's wood, so leave enough to ensure a good crop, but not overburden the tree. Removing interior branches opens up the tree and allows sunlight to penetrate to lower branches.
  • Size: 1 inch blossoms.
  • Fruit: Mild, slightly tangy freestone fruit with dark redskin and golden flesh.
  • Pollinator: Self-pollinating, yields better with another peach or nectarine variety.

    The hardiest nectarine. 800 chill hours. Can take temperatures to -14 degrees F. without loss of crop.-20 degrees F. Smooth dark red skin. Firm yellow freestone flesh. Excellent quality. Resistant to brown rot and leaf spot.
