Arctic Fantasy Nectarine Tree Information and Care

As a popular deciduous tree, Arctic fantasy nectarine trees can be kept small for the home orchard. Plant in the full sun and well draining soil. Water once to twice a week in the Spring to Summer depending on the weather. Notice how the temperature and humidity affection the soils moisture evaporation and trees transpiration.  Reduce frequency in the Fall as the weather cools down and the tree loses their leaves. Reduce the frequency gradually until you cut the water off for their winter dormancy. Do not provide supplemental water while the tree is dormant.

The Winter is a great time to prune nectarine trees. Trees can be kept small, between 8-20 ft tall with a full and wide canopy. Pruning nectarine trees are easier than you may think. Most nectarine trees grown for orchards are a low branching form for easy picking, To continue to keep trees small, simply cut the highest branches to promote lower branching.  Cuts should be based on the form of the overall tree and to maintain a shorter but fuller tree. Thin out the lowest branches and those in the center of the tree. Also remove dry twigs or branches and those growing towards the tree, crossing, or growing completely straight up (suckers).

Nectarine Tree Fertilizer

Fertilize with organic fruit tree fertilizers. Make sure to till the top layer of the soil. In the Winter, apply steer manure along with fertilizers with higher phosphorus and potassium like humus and bone meal. Use more nitrogen-based organic fertilizers like blood meal in the Spring and Summer growing season. There is not much growth and production in the Fall, so do not fertilize to prevent thin and lanky growth.

Nectarine Pests Management

Using organic Neem or Volcke oil as well as organic fungicides like liqui-cop in the late winter before Spring blossoms can help prevent pests and diseases during the year.
