Nectarine Trees

WHERE SHOULD I PLANT THEM?
Peaches, plums and nectarines prefer well-drained soils and part to full sun.

ROOT STOCK
Peaches, plums and nectarines are highly susceptible to nematodes in the Deep South, especially in sandy soils. Nemagard or Guardian are the preferred rootstocks as they offer resistance to the pesky little worms. Our trees for Zone 8 are grafted on Nemaguard while the tropical plums are grafted onto Guardian. All plums require a pollinator.

FERTILIZER
These guys are ferocious feeders so it really pays to do a light application of manure and hay in the spring. Then side dress with a balanced fertilizer high in trace elements in February, May and July.

WHAT MAKES A NECTARINE?
A nectarine is actually just a waxy-skinned peach. A single genetic change causes the absence of fuzz.

Nectarine Trees - Nectarine Varieties

Buying and Growing Tips…

When choosing varieties of nectarines, keep in mind the ripening times of each variety. To help stretch your fresh fruit season pick one early and one late ripening ones. Thin your fruit when they are the size of walnuts, to get a larger size fruit, the rule of thumb is one peach for every 6 inches of branch.
