Nectarine – Artic Jay

Nectarine – Artic Jay

The Artic Jay Nectarine is a delicious white nectarine. When growing in a small space or a container, it is best to have a dwarf or ultra-dwarf rootstock. If you go with standard or semi-dwarf rootstock, the tree will suffer because its roots cannot spread enough. The biggest problem with nectarines is the dreaded “Peach Leaf Curl”. This plant is attractive to bees, butterflies and/or birds. Average Water Needs; Water regularly; do not overwater.
