Growers love our Harko Nectarine Tree (Prunus persica var. nucipersica 'Harko'), and we don’t blame them a bit. This easy-to-grow tree offers a bountiful late mid-season harvest that yields bushels of sweet, juicy nectarines.

Many growers choose the Harko Nectarine Tree for their yards where they can watch in wonder as it puts out a magnificent pink flower display in late spring before becoming heavy with fruit over the summer. You can grow this in Zone 5, so cold winter gardeners can enjoy the fabulous taste of these homegrown fruits, too!

Neighbors and passersby will marvel at the oversized pink blossoms of the Harko Nectarine each spring, leading to an array of "oohs and aahs" by all who come across it.The freestone fruit features a deep red blush on its skin and yellow undertones, resulting in a stunning look contrasting with its deep green foliage. This tree presents a striking picture.

Harko Nectarine is both sweet and juicy, some say it is a peach with no fuzz. Use it to replace peaches in your favorite late summer recipes, from fruit salad to homemade pie. This fruit cans well, so you can preserve some of your bounty for enjoyment in the winter and baking holiday desserts.

Don't be surprised if you find yourself with more nectarines than you had imagined, since this tree is a heavy producer. Thinning out your crop a bit helps you to get larger, higher quality nectarines from your tree.

Harko Nectarine Tree adapts readily to nearly all soil conditions, is cold-hardy for growing in colder climates, and it resists disease. Top that with a fruit that the whole family loves, and you've got a recipe for success. 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. Order today, don't miss this year's crop!
