Garden Delight Nectarine miniature

I ordered this tree May 16 and my UPS man delivered it May 24. One hour later it was planted in my commercial grade hoop house that has a 10 foot ceiling. I have a Necta Zee Nectarine planted in another greenhouse. I bought it from Raintree. It’s been there for decades and has done very well. Reliably ripening nectarines every summer. It’s in the ground and about 30 inches high. I’m hoping the Garden Delight does as well but grows a bit taller than 30 inches. The new tree was packaged very well and very healthy with many leaf buds swelling and ready to grow. Tree looks beautiful and very full less than 3 weeks later. Nice branching structure. Thank you!

My delight nectarine!

I love nectarines and was thrilled to find a dwarf variety. The packaging upon arrival was horrendous and I was worried the plants would be damaged. Amazingly the plants were in perfect condition and the Nectarine had buds on all branches. Very impressed with the quality of plants and this beautiful nectarine tree!
