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 -10 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.

    Great Trees

    I got 9 large trees this February (2024). Today is March 17, and all the trees arrived healthy and happy, including this nectarine. What a beauty! Highly recommend place for your fruit tree needs.

    Came back to life

    Arrived beautifully. Did not transplant well. It was replaced. I kept taking care of it with zero luck until a full year later (this spring) I used Foxfarm Boomerang. New growth snd tree looks fantastic. Why FGT doesn’t carry FoxFarm products is truly behind me
