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!

Customer Reviews & Photos

My handyman came within hours of this being delivered and planted it for me. It has quite a few new little leaves and I'm encouraged that it will do well. I also bought a tree with four types of apples on it. It looks a little wilted but so far is alive despite heavy winds blowing here several times a week. Hoping for the best!
I ordered two nectarines sunglo and flavortop I planted them the day that they arrived, packed with miracle grow potting soil. Both went into shock the sunglow seems to be recovering but the flavor top is dropping its leaves and looking real wilted I'm not sure if it will survive or not it definitely is not looking healthy.

I wish it had not come with leaves on it yet. Too cool here and my other trees are just getting leaves now. Not sure if the tree is going to survive.
Tree came in great condition
The nectarines arrived in very good order. They were ready to bloom and within just a few days we were blessed with wonderful pink blooms.
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.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 7-10 days from date of purchase. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
