Dwarf nectarine tree ‘Fantasia‘ - Bare-rooted - TreePrunus persica var. nucipersica 'Fantasia'
Fresh nectarines from our own soil.
Sweet nectarines with golden yellow flesh. That's what the dwarf nectarine tree ‘Fantasia‘ produces. Due to its compact size, the ‘Fantasia‘ can be planted both in pots and out in the garden. The ‘Fantasia‘ is self-pollinating. We supply the dwarf nectarine tree ‘Fantasia‘ as bare-root stock — just the bare branch and roots. The branch is freshly removed from the soil. This gives it additional strength, enabling it to branch out faster than it would in a nursery pot. Plants grown from bare-root stock also adapt to their new environment more easily. They grow better and they're more economical. The fruit tree blossoms in spring. That's when it reveals its lovely pink flowers. A crop will be ready to harvest from summer onwards in the second year after planting. Pruning is not necessary. The dwarf nectarine tree grows in moisture-retaining soil that we keep nice and moist. It's best to give the tree extra water during dry spells. Sufficient light is needed to ensure good growth, which is why we plant the fruit tree in full or half sun.Show more

Early in the year, we recommend some mixed organic fertilizer. Apply a layer of mulch around the base of the tree. The nectarines will ripen, depending on the weather, between August and September. If you leave some nectarines on the tree to ripen for longer, they will get even sweeter. To protect against the birds getting to the fruit first we advise netting over the tree. The Dwarf Nectarine Tree doesn't need pruning.
