Why Flavortop Nectarine Trees?
Save money and get fresher fruit with your own Flavortop Nectarine Tree. Living up to its name, Flavortop Nectarines are truly delicious! And though they're expensive if you get them from your local market or grocery store, growing your own will save you a considerable amount of money each year...especially since this tree will be with you for generations.
The flavor is out of this world. Be prepared for a drastic difference in flavor than what you're used to. Commercially-grown nectarines are usually harvested too early in an effort to prevent bruising during shipping to your local grocer. That process stunts the natural course to juiciness that can be reached at its peak. Grow these on your own and experience the best nectarine you've ever had!

Flavortop Nectarine Tree Pollination
Flavortop Nectarine Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Flavortop Nectarine Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

So far so good
Received in healthy condition. Came with guidance on how to plant. Hoping to reap some fruits in the next few seasons!
I received this tree quickly and in ... amazing condition, since it had a blossom and many buds that appeared ready to open, though I received it in a week, in NH's Zone 5B when the night temps got below 40F! It was more than 6 feet tall. I put it into the ground one day later, when night temps were predicted to be higher. It seems, after a couple of weeks, to be fine. The other buds have not opened, but that single blossom remains. I expect it to be great, like everything I get from Fast Growing Trees. In fact, two days ago I ordered another tree from FGT, a Bing cherry.
Loves it. Plant came in great shape and beautiful. Will definitely order more from FGT. Thank you.
Arrived in great condition. Would buy again. Highly recommend.
It is very early (not long since planting) but all looks good. Looking forward to my own fruit. No more store bought.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your Flavortop in well-drained soil in a location where it will receive full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight a day). Heavy winds and early frosts can damage the blossoms, so be sure to protect your tree by planting on the sunniest side of a building or your home.
Dig a hole twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Amend the soil around the hole with compost to ensure the tree has proper drainage. Place your tree inside the hole, making sure it is sitting straight. Cover the roots with soil, watering occasionally as you go along to remove any air pockets. Mulch around the base to conserve soil moisture.
2. Watering: Keep the soil around the tree moist. Typically, watering once a week by leaving a hose at the base of the tree for about 20 or 30 minutes is sufficient. Once the soil around the tree has dried, water the tree again.
3. Fertilizing: After your tree has been in the ground for 6 weeks and the danger of frost has passed, apply a well-balanced fertilizer formula, such as 12-12-12.
4. Pruning: Your tree will need to be pruned in the first two years in order to maintain an open center shape and encourage fruit production. Prune your tree in late winter or early spring using pruning shears and make your cuts at a 45-degree angle.
FGT Tip: Once your tree begins to fruit, thin your branches out to allow each 8 inches of space between the nectarines.
