Honey Pearls™ Nectacot™ Tree

Perfect Pollinator for Sugar Pearls


We spent years looking for the best match to our favorite apricot, Sugar Pearls, so you can imagine our elation when we discovered this scrumptious variety was the perfect pollinator! Sweetly aromatic, richly flavorful and juicy, this new nectacot has its own attributes. Very late bloom time avoids damaging late frost which leads to heavy yields of crack-free fruit. Delectable nectacots have ambrosial, deep orange flesh and red-blushed skin, ripening to perfection in July. Zones 4-7. PPAF.
  • Zone 4 - 7 (-20 F.).
  • Height 15 - 20 feet for standard, 10 - 12 feet for semi-dwarf.
  • Shade Required Needs full sun for maximum flower and fruit production.

Plants are not available in AE AK CA CO GU HI ID OR PR WA
