Nectarella is a genetic dwarf nectarine variety, well-suited to pot-growing which gives flexibility in growing the tree to get the maximum sun in colder climates like the UK.

The flavour is good, and it is a freestone variety.

Although it is very slow-growing, it is also quite precocious, so you may find you get some fruit in the first or second year after purchase.

How to grow

Nectarella is a slow-growing variety, best grown in pot on the patio, and in the UK should be protected from the elements from January to May, e.g. in a cold greenhouse or conservatory. The blossom will appear in early spring, and since pollinating insects may be scarce at this time of year you can assist the pollination by dabbing the flowers with a very soft brush. As the fruitlets develop, thin them to leave a clear gap between each one. This will ensure the remaining ones grow larger and develop a better flavour.

Note that although our standard height definition for the St. Julien rootstock suggests the mature tree might be more than 3m tall, Nectarella produces a much smaller tree than standard, especially if grown in a container.
