Snow Queen Nectarine Tree

Availability: Out of stock

Grow satisfyingly sweet fruit in your own backyard when you buy our Snow Queen Nectarine Tree (Prunus persica var. nucipersica 'Snow Queen') this season. Snow Queen is a showy beauty that rewards growers with a delicious crop year after year! It's also well known for its beautiful display of beautiful flowers each spring.

When the Snow Queen comes into her own each spring, your neighborhood will be abuzz with talk of her beautiful pink flowers that cover every limb, top to bottom. By harvest time, pick an abundance of fruit fresh that is heralded for its super sweet flavor! Featuring sweet white flesh beneath its red-tinged skin. This is perhaps the sweetest among all varieties and a proven taste-test champion.

This old-fashioned freestone tree produces juicy fruit that the whole family loves. You'll be glad to give them a sweet heaping helping of vitamins C and A! Nothing beats the telltale aroma of fresh Nectarines waiting in a fruit bowl on the counter. Enjoy them fresh from the tree, slice them into fruit salad, or add them to a crisp, tart or pie in place of peaches. Nectarines are also delicious as jams and jellies, holding up well when canned or frozen.

Planting and Application:

If you ask us, the best way to use these nectarines is in a mass planting in the backyard to create your very own orchard or hedgerow of delicious fruit. However, if you don't have multiple acres at your disposal, planting just one of these self-fertile trees in your backyard is a great option too!

There, it can serve as a gorgeous spring-flowering ornamental tree and follow later in the season with copious amounts of nectarines for your enjoyment. Adding a Snow Queen to your landscape will leave you baking with nectarines for a long time! The blooms and gorgeous foliage are enough to plant it front and center as a specimen!

  • White Flesh is Sweet & Juicy
  • Beautiful Show of Spring Flowers
  • Early Season Harvest
  • Freestone Fruit
  • Great for Baking, Jams & Fruit Salad

#ProPlantTips for Care:

The minimal pruning and care required by Snow Queen make it a grower's favorite. It fruits with just 250-300 chill hours, making it ideal for warm climates. Plant it in full sun, and enriched well-drained soil. This variety is self-pollinating but you'll find you get higher yields with another.

  • Full Sun - Great in Hot Climates
  • Moderate Consistent Moisture & Thick Mulch
  • Well-Drained Enriched Soil
  • Low Chill 250-300 Hours
  • Low-Maintenance Fruit Tree

We promise there's nothing like biting into a freshly picked Nectarine. Get your Snow Queen Nectarine Tree in time for planting this season. Order at now!
