Cold Hardy, Disease-Tolerant Tree Delivers Sweet Fruit
Why Harko Nectarine Trees?
One of the highest-scoring varieties in fruit testings, the Harko Nectarine Tree delivers juicy bounties with a sweet flavor that's second to none.
This cold-hardy variety from Canada gives you large, showy pink blossoms that give way to sweet nectarines, thriving even through chilly weather and tough conditions. And because the Harko is tolerant of bacterial spot and brown rot, it provides its delicious fruit without the need for harsh chemicals or sprays.
Plus, you won't have to deal with finicky care or fuss to get a bounty of delicious nectarines. In fact, you could get nectarines from our Harkos as soon as the first year or two.
But don't wait - the sooner you get your Harko Nectarine, the sooner you can begin enjoying home-grown nectarines. Get your Harko Nectarine today!

Harko Nectarine Tree Pollination
Harko Nectarine Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Harko Nectarine Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your nectarine tree in well-drained soil in a location where it will receive full sun (at least 6-8 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.
From there, 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.
2. Watering: Keep the soil around the tree moist but not saturated. Watering once a week by leaving a hose at the base of the tree for a few minutes is generally sufficient.
3. Fertilizing: After your tree has been in the ground for six weeks and the danger of frost has passed, apply a well-balanced fertilizer formula, such as 12-12-12.
4. Pruning: Prune 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 making your cuts at a 45-degree angle.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. 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.
