NECTARINE TREES FOR SALE

Tree Information: Size, Rootstock

Our nectarine trees for sale include popular varieties such as Fantasia. Moreover our bareroot nectarine trees are 1-2 years old, 4′-6′ tall, and have a an average caliper/diameter of ½”.

In fact, nectarine trees, except for seedlings, have two parts. The first part is the scion which is above the ground and responsible for the fruit’s characteristics and disease resistance. And secondly, the rootstock, which is under the ground and responsible for the size, cold hardiness, and partly the disease resistance. In fact we grow our nectarine trees on Bailey and Lovell rootstocks which produce trees around 10-15′ tall with proper pruning. Learn more about our rootstocks.

What’s the difference between a nectarine and a peach? Only one gene in fact which makes nectarines smooth and peaches fuzzy. Moreover, this mutation happened naturally over 2,000 years ago in China. Afterwards, nectarines spread to Persia, Greece, Rome, and much later Europe. However, they are not only beautiful blazes that shine on the trees, but taste as their name suggests like the “food of the gods”.
