Mericrest Nectarine Tree

Mericrest Nectarine Tree

Quick to Produce

Mild, slightly tangy freestone fruit with dark redskin and golden flesh. Resists brown rot, leaf spot. Ripens mid to late Aug. Self-pollinating. Zones 5-8. Not available in CA, CO, ID, OR, WA.

Now available as a Reachables®! Reachables® Apple Tree produces full-sized fruit on a compact tree. This means it's easier to grow your own fruit even if you have limited space. You can plant Reachables in your garden, orchard or even a container. They are easier to manage than full-sized trees. Now one person can prune, spray, net and harvest the tree—without using a ladder! Please note: Because Reachables produce full-sized fruit on smaller trees, they require a tree support.

Why buy a Deluxe package - Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. Quik-Cal Pelletized Calcium to enhance fruit quality, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula, easy-to-use tree ties, a premium tree guard to protect the trunk from gnawing pests, mowers and weed trimmers, and a copy of Backyard Horticulture for Fun and Profit—How to Make $10,000 in Your Spare Time.

NOTE: We are unable to ship our trees to PO Boxes at this time.

Product Details

  • Botanical Name: Prunus persica 'Mericrest'
  • Height: Standard: 16 feet. Reachables: 6-8 feet. Reachables tree heights will vary some based on location, soil, light, temperature, and other environmental factors.
  • Spacing: Standard: 16 feet. Reachables: 8-12 feet.
  • Depth: Locate the planting depth indicator, the marked line above the tree's root system. The graft should be about 2 inches above the soil surface.
  • Spread: Standard: 18 feet
  • Sun/Shade: Full Sun
  • Color: White
  • Foliage: Dark green, long narrow leaves.
  • Blooms: April
  • Form: Deciduous, spreading.
  • Flower Form: 1-inch, pink blossoms.
  • 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.
  • Yield: Standard: Approximately 3-6 bushels at maturity -- Reachables: 3/4 - 1 bushel
