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.
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.
- Brown Rot and Bacterial Spot tolerant
- Cold hardy, Adaptable to a variety of soils
- Superior fruit
