Tons of sweet nectarines with months of color

People will line up for days in order to get their hands on Red Gold Nectarines because their firm flesh that’s sweet, tangy and juicy is irresistible. These nectarines are incredibly refreshing during hot summer days and have the perfect amount of sweetness for baking into pies or jams.  

There is little to no wait or prep work involved for eating Red Gold Nectarines because their skin is smooth, unlike fuzzy peaches. Instead of going inside to peel your fruit, you can enjoy your nectarines instantly, as soon as they’re harvested. 

The Red Gold Nectarine is a delight to have in the landscape because they erupt with vibrant pink blooms every spring, before tons of dark red and gold nectarines grow and pop against the tree’s lush green canopy. In the fall the green leaves turn a bright show of yellow. The colorful display presented by this nectarine variety lasts for months. 

By only growing to about 12 to 15 feet tall and wide the Red Gold Nectarine tree is a compact tree that will fit anywhere, even into landscapes with limited space. By staying small this nectarine variety can fit in tight spaces close to the home and driveway without taking it over.  

Red Gold Nectarine trees are extremely low maintenance. They rarely require any pruning and are drought tolerant and heat resistant. These trees will flourish in the south with heat waves and prolonged periods of dryness.  

By being cold hardy to growing zone 5, this nectarine variety can withstand temperatures down to -20 degrees and will be fine under layers of ice and snow. Nothing stops the beautiful Red Gold Nectarine from producing an endless supply of sweet, juicy fruit.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Red Gold Nectarine



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Red Gold Nectarine .

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Red Gold Nectarine gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Red Gold Nectarine again after the transplant is complete.
