Plant this Desert Delight Nectarine tree in your backyard and pick your own fresh and juicy nectarines. The best thing about growing your own nectarines is that they taste much better than any store bought and you know exactly where they come from. These wonderful nectarines have a common name that is the perfect match. They are a low-chill cultivar and are self-fruitful, so they can be planted alone in the landscape. Best of all, these are proven heavy producers, so you’ll have a plentiful bounty of these rich flavored fruits just in time for summer!
Desert Delight Nectarine trees love the sun and once established will require low to moderate watering. These are attractive small trees with glossy green foliage and large sized fruit with red skin that add a nice splash of color into any landscape. Adding to their ornamental features are beautiful pink blossoms that arrive in spring. They’re an ideal size for smaller yards and we also like to use them as espalier against a wall or fence.
