Product Description
This best-tasting nectarine combines the high sugar levels of white peaches and the zing of nectarines. The smooth-skinned fruits have tender, melt-in-your-mouth texture that you won't find in a grocery-store nectarine. Yumm Yumm Nectarine produces high yields of white-fleshed fruits that are perfect for fresh eating, baking, making jellies, jams and preserves, and canning. Fruits ripen in June. This self-pollinating tree exhibits excellent resistance to diseases, including bacterial spot. Zones 5-8. If you're short on growing space, try our Reachables size—smaller, more compact than a regular nectarine tree, with high yields of delicious full-sized fruit. Reachables are incredibly easy to manage. You don't even need a ladder for harvesting! Note: Reachables require 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, 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.

  • Pruning: Nectarine trees need to be pruned to optimize fruit production and allow sunlight into the tree. Most home gardeners do not prune their trees enough. Pruning encourages new growth and shapes the tree. Prune nectarines hard, removing most of the previous year's growth. Fruit will be produced on the previous year's wood, so leave enough to ensure a good crop, but not overburden the tree. Removing interior branches opens up the tree and allows light to penetrate to lower branches.
