#ProPlantTips for Care:

All fruit trees need is some full sun and well-drained soil. Keep the moisture moderate once they're established and mulch the site very well. Plant in full sun where it receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight. It's always best to select an area that receives the drying power of the morning sun.

Fruit trees can't tolerate standing water, so make sure the site you select has well-drained soil. Adapting to just about any soil type, as long as it is well-drained. This is a great choice for mild climates. It enjoys lots of good air circulation, so make sure the planting site isn't a low-lying trap for cold air.

Plan to supply a regular schedule of water. This is critical during the first year in your landscape. Add supplemental water during fruit development every year. Wood Mulch helps keep the root system nice and cool. Add a 3-4 inch layer each spring, but pull back 6 inches from the trunk.

Prune in late winter to maintain a vase-shaped canopy with scaffolding branches at a 45-degree angle. Remove branches that cross or shade others, or grow into the interior of the canopy. Your goal is to work to increase sunlight and air circulation in the canopy.

Nectarine Tree Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take for Nectarine Trees to bear fruit?

Nature Hills Nursery sells fruit trees with mature root systems that are already three to four years old, so you'll enjoy fruit sooner than you would with younger trees! Expect your young Nectarine tree to begin fruiting usually by the 2nd-4th year after you plant them.

How Fast Do Nectarine Trees Grow?

Once your Nectarine tree has been established (after the first year), it can typically add 12-18 inches of new growth in a growing season. If your plants are adding less than that in a season, it may be worth your while to check the fertility level.

Where do Nectarine Trees Grow Best?

Nectarine trees grow best in well-drained, fertile soil in at least 6 hours of full sun per day or more. Provide good air circulation and moderate, yet consistent water. They do need very well-drained soil.

Do You Need 2 Nectarine Trees to Produce Fruit?

Many Nectarine trees are self-fertile, however planting more than one Nectarine tree that blooms at about the same time, boosts yields on both trees and extends your harvest time! The Nectarine Tree is self-pollinating and doesn't need a pollinator to produce fruit.

Nectarine trees that need a pollinator partner will have the appropriate tree(s) listed for you to choose from. Nature Hills Nursery lists pollinators for each tree on the product pages. This gives you must-have information right at your fingertips!

No room? Look into High-Density Planting techniques, or choose a semi-dwarf or dwarf fruit tree.

When Should Nectarine Tree be Planted?

Bareroot Nectarine trees can be planted in spring when they are available in your area. Container-grown Nectarine trees can be very successfully transplanted all throughout the growing season. Check the first and last frost dates for your area with your local County Extension Office.

  • Plant bareroot Nectarine trees in the early spring.
  • Plant container-grown trees anytime the ground is not frozen by digging a hole as deep as the soil line and twice as wide.
