About the NECTARINE "HARDY RED" NECTARINE*
HARDY RED nectarine is a vigorous and productive tree that bears loads of deep -red skinned nectarines with a delicious, sweet yellow flesh. Its flavor surpasses anything you will ever buy in supermarket! Those nectarines are superb for eating fresh, desserts, canning or preserves. Any fruit we do not devour when fresh...we just freeze the slightly stewed flesh (no sugar or thickeners) for our winter enjoyment. The best nectarine (really just a fuzz-less peach)! And the dazzling pink spring bloom is a sight to behold. The rendering of the plant may vary depending on the time of year.

Fruit Tree Care Guide by Notorious BIOVERTCITÉ
This potted fruit tree is typically grown in a designated area of the yard because of its mature size and spread. It should only be grown in full sunlight. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It prefer sandy potted mix soil type + coarse barks and pH (neutral to acidic). It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. It will benefit from being disposed in a relatively sheltered location from prevailing winds. Prune during dormancy (late March, early April). All dead or damaged branches must be eliminated to prevent diseases. Fertilize one time in early May (1/2) and second time in early June (2/2). For POTTED FRUIT TREES, a regular supply of water is required, mainly in drought periods.
