Redgold Nectarine

Prunus persica 'Redgold'
  • Summary
  • Hardiness Zone & More

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.

Redgold originated in California and was introduced around 1960.
