Succulently Sweet Fantasia Nectarine

  • Large, Juicy Fruit
  • Freestone
  • Self Pollinating
  • Long Hang Time
  • Gorgeous Spring Blooms

Sometimes referred to as a "bald peach," the nectarine is a great addition to your orchard. Our Sweet Fantasia Nectarine (Prunus persica var. nucipersica 'Fantasia') is a popular, large, freestone variety that offers growers an early harvest of sweet, tangy fruit that has many of the same properties of the peach, minus the fuzz!

A perpetually high-scorer in taste tests, the Sweet Fantasia Nectarine is the peach's more interesting cousin. The fruit itself is more aromatic than the peach, with sweet, succulent flesh that has a bit of a spicy afterbite.

No summer is complete without feeling the childhood joy of fresh nectarine juice on the chin, it's practically a rite of summer in some areas of the country. The early harvest produces firm, ripe, and tangy fruits, while late harvest fruits tend to be sweeter with a more robust flavor profile. Let the fruit hang on the tree if you like sweeter and juicier fruit.

The Sweet Fantasia Nectarine offers plenty of culinary uses. Pick it straight from the tree, and then eat it by itself, slice it into a yummy fruit salad, or create fabulous jellies, jams and preserves. This freestone fruit makes it so easy to prep for use in dessert recipes calling for peaches, including pies, crisps and cobblers. Wonderful for canning!

The nectarines themselves are stunning to behold, large, bright yellow fruit with a pretty red blush. And the dazzling pink spring bloom is a sight to behold.

Our Sweet Fantasia Nectarine is a self-pollinator, making it an ideal option for the home gardener. The tree's low chill requirement make it just the variety for a range of different climates. Often planted alongside apple, cherry or pear trees, the nectarine is a vigorous grower that requires pruning and thinning to ensure crop consistency. Hold the Sweet Fantasia Nectarine to any height with summer pruning. Moderate soil fertility and good drainage is a must.
