Redgold Nectarine

Prunus persica 'Redgold'

Redgold is one of the most well known of the nectarines.  It is a large, glossy, highly colored fruit with firm and juicy freestone flesh.  It stores and keeps well.  Ripens later in the season a couple weeks before Elberta.  While it is fairly hardy, it is not recommended for eastern areas where bacterial spot is a problem.

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..
