Most Highly Rated Nectarine Flavor Available

If you haven't eaten a home-grown nectarine freshly picked from a Flavortop tree in your own garden, then you might as well have never eaten a nectarine. Commercially grown nectarines are typically harvested too early in an effort to prevent bruising during shipping to your local grocer.

Nectarines should always be tree-ripened and picked while still firm, but fiery red and aromatic. The start of Flavortop's season has this nectarine tree flaunting can remarkably handsome blossoms that are the color of pink cotton candy. These lovely flowers are large and fragrant, leaving your garden area lightly perfumed with the fresh scent of springtime.

In the 3rd or 4th year, Flavortop will begin to provide you with your first nectarines to harvest around mid-summer. These nectarines are large and juicy, with flesh that is yellow, sweet and divinely delicious. Experts consider Flavortop to have the most highly rated nectarine for flavor available. These dessert quality fruit make for supreme pies and cobblers, and can even be popped in your juicer.

The Flavortop Nectarine tree has a large growing zone, and is hardy and vigorous. The average mature height for this tree falls within the range of 12-15 feet, but it can sometimes grow even taller. Annual pruning will help in maintaining a desired size for this tree, as well as encourage new growth.

In addition, an unpruned tree will set an enormous crop of very small fruit the season after pruning is absent. So, to achieve the maximum production of a healthy crop of large fruit, it's important to trim away old growth each year starting from the center of the tree. As with most nectarine trees, the Flavortop tree needs full sun to produce the best quality fruit. It adapts easily to basic well-drained soil and regular fertilization.

This tree is self-fertile, so you only need one to tree to produce fruit. But they are so pretty, that two flanking a garden entrance would be spectacular. If you're a nature lover, you'll love Flavortop for its ability to attract hummingbirds and butterflies like a magnet.

Our Flavortop Nectarine tree will make a marvelous addition to any home orchard. Order yours today, while supplies last.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Flavortop Nectarine

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Flavortop 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 Flavortop 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 Flavortop Nectarine again after the transplant is complete.
