Desert Dawn Nectarines feature solid red skin and juicy, rich flavor, so if you love the taste of nectarines, you’ll want this tree. They are considered to be the most adaptable of all fruit trees for backyards and are proven heavy producers. Since they are self-fruitful, they can be planted alone with no need for cross-pollination. Once they start producing, you’ll be able to pick the wonderful fruit straight off the tree. Moon Valley Nurseries have what you need for any backyard orchard, including Desert Dawn nectarine trees available at their already fruit-producing age.
These trees can grow to be a medium size tree and look fantastic on any landscape. The green foliage contrasts nicely with the solid red skin that these Desert Dawn Nectarines are known for, so we like to plant them anywhere in the backyard that gets plenty of full sun. Once established, they will have low to moderate watering needs and a little pruning can assure proper growth and development.
If you want to eat the best-tasting fruit, grow your own. By growing your own nectarines you can feel good knowing exactly where your fruit comes from. Homegrown fruit can also help save you money because you can choose to grow them organically and not pay those high grocery store prices. Enjoy a wonderful bounty that you can share with friends, family and neighbors.
