Nectarines are almost all self-fertile and so one tree can be planted without worrying about pollination.  In general, though, nectarines are slightly less winter hardy than peaches and are more susceptible to brown rot.  Don't forget to thin the young fruit heavily for better size!  Thin to at least 6-10 inches apart on vigorous growing trees.  Prune trees adequately late in the spring to maintain good vigor.

Due to phytosanitary restrictions and concerns Grandpa will not accept orders or ship Nectarine or Peach or other stonefruits to CA or HI and the following counties in Colorado---Alamosa, Conejos, Costilla, Mesa, Rio Grande, Saguache Counties.  We may limit shipping of certain varieties to the following states---  ID, OR, WA--- depending on their source and virus-free certification status. We cannot ship any stock to CANADA or outside the USA.

Note:  Planting a variety outside of its normal Hardiness Zone will void our normal replacement policy.  Please be careful in your selections!
