Beautiful Tree with Outstanding Fruit
Zephyr Nectarine is a tree that produces fruit of exceptional quality. You won't want to miss a moment of your tree's display as it develops from flower to fruit, so plant near a window or patio for optimal enjoyment.
Your Zephyr Nectarine is, of course, renown for the delicious fruit it produces. Just when the summer garden has begun its decline, your Zephyr will prolong the joy of summertime just a bit more.
From August into September you can count on your Zephyr's limbs being laden with its large, slightly ovate fruit. The pinkish-red hues against the yellow/green background tones will create one of the loveliest sights in your yard, drawing you in for a closer look.
You won't be able to resist picking a nectarine fresh from your tree, and holding its sun-warmed brilliance in your hand. Take a bite and you'll instantly understand why Zephyr is valued as an exception nectarine. Its flesh is firm with a dramatic, sweet flavor that has just enough acidity to give it a little zing.
The scent is a luscious lure that will draw you in for taste after taste. Slice one in half and note the pristine, white flesh and the red blush surrounding the pit. Beyond its deliciousness right off the tree, Zephyr's attractive appearance and freestone pit make it ideal for many culinary purposes.
Zephyr Nectarine is resistant to bacterial leaf spot (a problem that diminishes the yield of lesser varieties). It can tolerate a variety of soils and is considered a vigorous, productive tree.
Many people love nectarines because, while similar to peaches, they don't have the fuzzy exterior. They also have more of vitamins A, C and Potassium than peaches, providing you with some added health benefits when you plant a Zephyr.
For a lovely, high-producing nectarine tree, Zephyr is certainly a great choice. It's even self-pollinating so you won't have to plant more than one...although once you've experienced its outstanding harvest, you're sure to plant more to share with family and friends.
