Planting & Care

Nectarines prefer light, well-drained, somewhat sandy soil. Mulching helps retain moisture and helps to stabilize the soil temperature. Nectarines grow best in full sun with at least 8 hours of direct sun favoring the morning sun, in a location where cold air or frost will not settle. Choose a protected location that is sheltered from wind. Water regularly, at least weekly, during the first year in the ground. Keep the soil evenly moist, but not wet. Enjoy clouds of showy pink blossoms in the Spring. Nectarines are great for eating fresh and can be used in recipes the same ways peaches are used.
