This tree produces a fruit that is sweet and juicy. It's a taste test winner. It is an early season white freestone. Long-time favorite in Southern California for its low chilling needs. Harvest June 20- July 1. (250-300 chill hours). Tree may reach a height of 20' and is self-fertile. Requires pruning and thinning for consistent, quality crops. Moderate fertility and good drainage a must.

Generally, nectarines don't do well in humid climates. They are susceptible to peach leaf curl, brown rot & oriental fruit moth.
