- Happy growing in sunny parts of the UK
- Self-fertile for guaranteed fruit given warmth and full sun
- Freestone type- flesh doesn't stick to the stone
Grow nectarine Lord Napier on your plot if it enjoys the exposure of full sun and is sheltered from the wind.
Lord Napier trees are one of the earliest and also largest fruiting nectarines, they have been grown very successfully in the UK since the early 1860’s!
When in the full sun the nectarines skin has a wonderful, dark red to purple blush. Inside the delicious juicy, white flesh has a melt-in-the-mouth texture. You can fully appreciate that is looks lovely and tastes as good as it looks.
Look forward to receiving your plant in a 9litre pot in which it will have an excellent set of roots to support fruiting stems.
Replant into a larger pot after a few months or so, using rich John Innes No3 compost and well rotted manure.
