Spicezee - Nectarine x Plum

We just harvested our first Spice Zee Nectaplum and, no exaggeration here, it was just about the tastiest fruit we’ve ever eaten–very sweet, with a indescribably rich taste and aroma. If you’ve got the space I’d highly recommend this tree. If I could hav | Mr Homegrown - California, CA 24-Jul-2013

Extremely tasty fruit and very ornamental. Chook pen friendly as deep rooted. Didn't like my 50L pot, too small for its root ball. | Cherise Haslam - Fremantle, WA 30-Jun-2018

The first NectaPlum%uFFFD from Zaiger Genetics: a white-fleshed, nectarine-peach-plum hybrid. Skin is dark maroon at fruit set, and turns pale pink when ripe. Fully ripe fruit is unparalled in flavor, and both nectarine and plum traits are easily detectable. Very productive tree is also quite ornamental. Tremendous purplish pink bloom in the spring, followed by a flourish of red leaves which mature into lush green in late summer.

Planted as a DUO with Plum Luisa

Height 1 metres

Comments: - WISH LIST Oh, but I would love to try this. Heard it can out perform a low chill nectarine in my part of Brisbane. Would like a productive stone fruit. But how well does this do in a pot?

   Heard about this fruit tree from one of Tom Spellman's excellent YouTube videos for Dave Wilson Nursery. He raves about it, and from what I've read, it's certainly worth raving about. Bought this as a potted tree rather than a bare root tree, and planted it in a garden bed in late October 2017 (Gold Coast). I prepared the bed with compost, chicken poop compost, and Dynamic Lifter, and watered the tree in with a healthy dose of Seasol. The entire bed has a thick layer of cane mulch.

   It has thrived, and at present (Jan 2018) it's about one metre tall. As with all my other trees, it will be pruned regularly so it grows no taller than 150-180cm. It's self-pollinating, but there are plum and nectarine trees nearby to perhaps give it a boost with some cross-pollinating.

   I fertilise with varying ratios and amounts of Dynamic Lifter or Rooster Booster, sulphate of potash, and blood and bone at the beginning of spring, summer and autumn. I also give fortnightly foliar sprays of a diluted solution of Seasol, Powerfeed for flowers and fruit, soluble sulphate of potash, and Epsom salts during the non-dormant months.

   I use a soil moisture meter, and water as necessary.

   If the tree continues at its current growth rate, I'm hoping it will be strong enough and the root structure developed enough that I can leave a few fruit on next season to taste.

Planted: 2017

Height 1 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 1

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Pollination: Cross Pollination

Cross Pollinator Variety: Two plum and three nectarine trees

Pest Control: Occasional Eco-Neem spray, and copper spray during dormancy. When fruiting the fruit will be bagged against fruit fly.

Organic Status:Partially Organic
