Looking to add the Zee Glo nectarine to my orchard.
It's a fantastic tasting nectarine, rarely grown today as the high brix, low acid varieties dominate commercially.
Here is the description from Dave Wilson:
Zee Glo
Taste test winner. Delicious late summer fruit with classic, zesty, nectarine flavor. Superb balance of acid and sugar. Attractive, dark red skin. Harvest about two weeks after Fantasia, mid to late August in central California. Showy pink blossoms in spring. 6-700 hours. Self-fruitful. (Zaiger)

Here's the run down:
As they are bud to order commercially (available for the retail market in USA but not in Australia), I'm looking for others who would be interested in adding the tree to their orchard. The greater the interest, the less the cost per tree for everyone.
eg.(50 trees budded = $18.75 per tree).
NB: trees are budded this year and available next winter (2013).
There's no competition with Daleys as those on offer here are low chill varieties suited to the sub-tropics/tropical areas. I have no affiliation with any nursery. Just wish some of the decent varieties readily available to the retail market overseas, were accessible in Australia.

I'm not sure if you know that nectarines and peaches come pretty true from seed and take about 3 years to fruit. May be a cheap alternative to buy fruit and plant seed.

FYI, anything starting with 'Zee' is genetically engineered. This may or may not bother you, but certainly not allowed in certified organic orchards.

Zee is just a trademark of Zaiger, the plant breeder. The fruit are hybrids, like a F1 vegetable variety. Doesn't make them GM.

Julie, go easy on the assertions. It's a long way back if you are wrong.

A long way back to where? I was given this info in good faith several years ago. Perhaps it was incorrect, but no need to be rude about it.
