Is This Plant Self Pollinating?

Sugar Pie Nectarine is self-fertile, but the fruit crop will be larger if the tree is planted with a second tree.

Description

Prunus persica var. nucipersica ‘Sugar Pie’

Sugar Pie Nectarine is one of the columnar selections from Tomorrows Harvests Unban Skyscraper collection. This white fleshed, flat, bagel-shaped nectarine has a terrific sweet taste right off the tree. Appealing to many, as it is delicious when it is firm ripe and just keeps getting better until it is syrupy sweet and juicy when fully ripe. Ripening in the mid season, late July to early August in California, it is the perfect mid summer treat. Enjoy clouds of showy pink blossoms in the Spring. Nectarines are great for eating fresh or used in recipes the same way peaches are used The narrow upright growth habit allows The Sugar Pie Nectarine to be planted in tight areas, growing only 4 -5 Feet wide. Size control becomes much easier and keeping your tree under 10 feet with pruning is even easier with one of the Urban Skyscraper selections. This also makes it a candidate for a nectarine espalier another great way to grow fruit trees in limited space.

Planting & Care

Nectarines prefer light, well-drained soil. Elevate in a mound at least 18 to 24 inches high and 4 feet wide or plant in a raised bed if poor drainage is suspected. Nectarines grow best in full sun, at least 8 hours of direct sun favoring the morning sun. Choose a location where cold air or frost will not settle. Choose a protected location that is sheltered from wind. Mulching helps retain moisture and helps to stabilize the soil temperature. Mulch to 3 to 4 inches deep and 3 feet outside of the canopy. Water regularly, at least weekly, during the first year in the ground. Keep the soil evenly moist, but not wet.
