Description

New Product!

Named after its snow white flesh, the Arctic Star White Nectarine is sweet, juicy, and incredibly delicious. Boasting a beautiful deep red skin, the fruit is low in acidity with no tartness. This nectarine tree blossoms with beautiful pink flowers in the spring with rich green foliage.

A reliable producer, the Arctic Star White Nectarine flourishes in full sun and well-drained soil. The semi-freestone fruit ripen in the early summer months and the white nectarines are great for canning and are often utilized in desserts and preserves.

The Arctic Star White Nectarine is self-fertile and a great pollinizer for other nectarine varieties. A great low chill nectarine tree for mild winter climates. Plant in full sun in soil with good drainage and you’ll be harvesting medium-sized nectarines from your own yard or orchard before you know it!

Proper Zone. The other new white Nectarine for this zone specified "low humidity" which Alabama definitely does NOT have.

Before I order the Arctic nectarine, please tell me what you mean by low till hours for 10a zone? I do want this tree to produce, but in 10a we rarely ever go below 40 F degrees, please describe what you mean, what are chill hours in 10a needed for this plant?
Marcella S on Dec 21, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Chill Hours (sometimes called Chill Units) are an approximation of how many hours of weather between 32 degrees and 45 degrees (F) a plant requires to properly go dormant so it can wake up and blossom and/or set fruit. This variety need 300 chill hours for it to thrive and bear fruit.
