My wife loves nectarines.
Jonathan H on Apr 26, 2016
This will be my first nectarine tree. I planted a small orchard last year (8 trees) and all my trees are very young. This will fit right in.

It fits in with other fruit ripining times in my orchard, and I'm down sizing from the full size Mericrest that I have.

stark sunglo nectarine
Tree is growing like crazy. It had some blooms but even though we covered it, I think the frost got some of the blooms. I am very pleased with the growth of my tree and looking forward to the fruit.

Growing great so far
Planted March 2015. A year later its nearly doubled in size and as big as my honeycrisp and red rome apple trees planted in 2012. I live in Commerce MI, 30min NW of Detroit.

I love this tree
I ordered this tree last Spring. It has grown well, and is much larger than I expected it to be after one year. It even has fruit on it this year (3 or 4, but it is more than I expected the first year.) I always check the Stark Brother's website first when looking for a fruit tree.

Awesome
These trees are loaded and it is only the second year. I have learned a lesson, don't buy any fruit trees except from Stark Bros.

sapling.
My Nectarine is still a sapling growing through it's first spring from last spring's planting. At this point it looks extremely robust and in dire need of pruning. I look forward to another year of growth then production of fruit. I recommend for Zone 7a.

Too early to tell
The dwarf SunGlo Nectarine is alive and growing but has only been in the ground since March 2015 so it is too early to tell what success I'll have with it. It had quite a few flowers on it this spring, but with the lack of pollinators now no fruit even started to form. I planted one of these at my former home in Alabama in the late 1970s, and it was simply beautiful with all of the fruit on it. It looked like the cover of a catalog. I hope this one does as well, but I also hope I don't have to pollinate it by hand. I have a Stark dwarf Methley plum that was supposed to be self fertile (planted March 2007), but even though I have hand-pollenated it with a small paintbrush the last two years, all I've ever got off it is two plums.
