  • Large yields of freestone fruit
  • Ripens in mid to late August
  • Disease-resistant variety
Produces plenty of attractive, dark red, smooth-skinned fruits with firm yellow fresh and a mild, slightly tangy flavor. This freestone variety is excellent for eating fresh and cans well too. Ripens in mid to late August. One of the hardiest nectarine varieties available, Mericrest can take temperature to -14 degrees F. without loss of crop. Resistant to brown rot and leaf spot. Requires 800 chill hours. Self-pollinating, but produces even larger yields with another peach or nectarine variety. Zones 5-8.

Now available in Reachables size! A Reachables tree produces full-sized fruits, but on a smaller tree. That makes it easier to fit into your garden, orchard—or even a container. Thanks to state-of-the-art rootstock technology, these trees stay manageable allowing one person to prune, spray, net and harvest the tree—all while standing on the ground. No ladders required! Note: Because their full-sized fruits grow on smaller trees, Reachables require a tree support.

Why buy a Deluxe package - Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. of Fruit-Boost™ Pelletized Calcium to enhance fruit quality, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula, easy-to-use tree ties (see video below), 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.
