After observing this Rutgers selection for six seasons and continually being impressed with its performance, we have decided to officially release it. Brigantine™ is a yellow-fleshed, semi-freestone nectarine ripening approximately 5-10 days before Redhaven. Medium in size, the fruit finishes scarlet red over a slightly yellow background. The flesh is firm, and flavor is spicy and sweet.  We have yet to observe bacterial spot in this variety.PPAF.

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.
