Performs Great in Taste Tests!

Harko Nectarine is a fruit-producing tree with a mid-season harvest.  One would do well in your yard where you can watch as its spectacular spring display transitions to superb fruit.

Large, pink blossoms in spring soon lead to a nectarine that is one of the highest scorers in taste tests.  Your freestone fruit will ripen in August, with its red blush over yellow undertones presenting a stunning picture amid the green foliage of your mid-summer tree.  Harko is sweet and juicy, with a peach-like quality…but of course without the fuzz. 

Your Harko Nectarine Tree will grow up to 25 feet in height.  It can adapt to a variety of soil types and doesn’t require a pollinator to produce its remarkable fruit.  It’s a reliable producer of good sized harvests of nectarines with no split pits.  In fact, it tends to produce far too many fruit, so thinning your crop out a bit would help you to have fewer, but larger nectarines.

When considering a nectarine variety, Harko should certainly be at the top of your list.  Its cold hardy, soil adaptive, disease resistant…and even tastes amazing!  You can even try a Harko without buying more than one (as it’s self-fruitful).  However, we’re sure that once you've tried one you’ll be back for more of this exceptional nectarine variety.
