A top-rated producer! Dependable & worry-free.

The early-ripening fruits feature firm, yellow, flavorful flesh and a deep-red skin that is stunning on the tree. Good general disease-resistance but particularly to brown rot and bacterial spot, making this one of the easiest nectarines to grow. The crop yield is huge, so be sure to thin the fruit to get bigger, plumper nectarines. Semi-freestone. Originates from Ontario, Canada, introduced in 1974. Ripens in August. Self-pollinating.

    My tree arrived as a stick and is now a tree with actual fruit growing already. They are tiny, but they are there! This was my very first fruit tree. I couldn’t be happier with it. I’ll update once the fruit ripens!

    I planted this tree mid May 2014, it has about 75% sun to that of being in an open field, auto water, no food. First year it grew 3’-4’ to 7’. This year it is about 12’ tall and it is loaded with fruit. This tree likes to grow and bear and/or I must have some good soil here out in the sticks. Note: I started doing bees, and I am up to 10 hives. I noticed a tremendous difference in fruit on all my trees as a result. It is only May exactly 2 years after planting and the fruit is 1.5” diameter and growing. I don’t know anything about taste yet and if I can keep the raccoons from cleaning it, I might get to taste it.


    No fruit yet, but it is still growing. Happy wirth the purchase
