Nectafest PP#25,694

NectaFestis a new release from the USDA-ARS program in Kearneysville, West Virginia. It is an early-season selection, harvesting just after Easternglo. The fruit is very high quality for an early-season nectarine, exhibiting a very nice flavor profile. The tree is very grower friendly. This variety was placed in a few grower trials several years ago, and we have received very positive feedback regarding its performance.

About Rootstock

Our peach and nectarine trees are grown on industry standard Bailey rootstock. If we need to purchase peach trees to supplement our own inventory, these trees are typically grown on Lovell rootstock. For a traditional, open center planting we recommend spacing the trees 12-14’ in row and 20’ between rows. For perpendicular V training, the recommended spacing is 6’ in row and 20’ feet between rows.
