A new and distinct variety of nectarine Prunus persica tree, the Arctic Jay Nectarine tree is sure to please!

In spring, you will notice large, showy pink flowers, giving way to attractive red fruit. The Arctic Jay nectarine is a heavy and regular bearer of large, firm, white-fleshed, freestone fruit and is noted for excellent flavor and eating quality. The nice balance of acid and sugar make these nectarines versatile for baking, preserving, and fresh eating.

The fruit of this heavy producer can stay firm on the tree 8 to 10 days after maturity, allowing good handling and shipping quality. Arctic Jay is a vigorous, upright growing tree that is self-fruitful.
