White Nectarine Tree

R235.00

White nectarine trees produce delicious, sweet, and slightly tangy nectarines with pale or white flesh. The skin colour can vary from light yellow to a reddish blush. White nectarines are sweeter and less acidic than yellow nectarines, with a distinct honeyed flavour. They are prized for their juicy and aromatic qualities. They have attractive pink or white blossoms in the spring.
Like most fruit trees, although they are self-pollinating, a compatible pollinator can improve fruit yield.

Scroll Down for Growing Information:

Position – Plant in full sun. To produce fruit, it is essential to have enough sunlight for growth.

Size – White nectarine trees can grow up to 6 metres tall.

Soil Type – Well-drained soil is essential so the tree’s roots never get waterlogged.

Mulch – We recommend pine bark mulch for all fruiting plants and trees. Mulch helps to protect the roots from scorching sun in summer and cold in winter. Mulch also helps the roots to retain moisture during the dry season.

Watering – Regular watering is necessary to ensure the roots never dry out.

Fertilising – We recommend an organic fertiliser every few months to ensure the tree’s health and improve the fruit yield. One teaspoon of our slow release Berry Fertiliser can be used twice a year.

Pruning – Pruning is essential to maintain tree shape and remove dead or diseased branches. Pruning helps to open for airflow.

Harvesting  White nectarines are typically ready for harvest in the summer. The fruit should be slightly soft and have a sweet aroma. Be gentle when picking to avoid bruising.

Pests & Diseases   White nectarine trees are susceptible to various pests and diseases, including aphids, brown rot, and leaf curl. Just Berry Plants recommends using Effective Microorganisms (EM Control) to prevent these problems.
