Independence Nectarine

Prunus persica 'Independence'

Independence nectarine has a freestone, large oral fruit that is gold, blushed with a brilliant cherry red. One of the best nectarines because of its rich, tangy-sweet flavor. Independence ripens very early in the season, well ahead of Redhaven peach.

Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips

Nectarines are self-fertile and can be planted by themselves. Treat a nectarine just like peaches when growing. Thin early and agressively for good size. Prune every year to maintain vigor. You should seek to get between 1-3 feet of new growth a year. Over, 3 feet and you are probably fertilizing too much..
