The Super Dwarf Sunset Nectarine has beautiful, dark red leaves throughout the year. The plant grows to approximate 1-1.5m height x 0.8m width. It has high density flowers and single pink blossoms in spring. The full sized, yellow flesh nectarines mature in November/December in Subtropical areas and December early January in cooler areas so you can avoid the rush of going to the supermarket to get your early season Summer fruit - just grow your own! This is also the ideal fruit tree to inspire kids to grow their own food in the garden. Best suited to subtropical climates.

★★★ 7y ago


Growing in a 45cm pot. It's put on a modest amount of growth in the year that I've had it. Seems like a true dwarf.

A beautiful tree in flower, and I would love to taste some fruit unaffected by fruit fly - maybe next year! Developed leaf curl immediately after domancy - left it too late with the lime sulfer spray.
