Nectarine Fruit Tree Assortment
Nectarines are a great addition to a landscape, and the perfect tree for edible landscape plantings. They are very productive and a mature tree will produce 50 to 150 pounds of fruit each year! Not only are they delicious, they are also easy to harvest and process into jams, juice, or use in cooking/baking. Nectarines are also very showy when they are in bloom. All varieties shipped as dormant, bareroot trees, with 3/8" to ½" caliper. Winter chill requirements are listed for each variety. The easiest way to find out what the average hours of winter chill you receive where you live is to check with your County Extension Service. You can also your chill hours with a Google search. Search for "USDA chill hours". If you don't get enough chill hours in your area, you may get inconsistent fruit set, some years may not have any fruit set. Fruit size is best when grown near other varieties of nectarines, but all are self-pollinating.
