Prunus persica var. nucipersica x 'Spice Zee'

Spice Zee is the first member of the NectaPlum™ family of fruits. NectaPlum™ is a novel catagory of interspecific cultivars, developed by the late, great breeding genius Floyd Zaiger, that is approximately 1/2 nectarine, 1/4 peach and 1/4 Asian plum. It truly tastes like a delicious cross between a plum and a nectarine, getting rave reviews wherever it is grown. Spice Zee is a great choice for the home gardener, with fruit offering a deep, complex aroma and flavor -  pleasantly tangy, yet loaded with sugar.

It's also a beautiful ornamental addition to your landscape with a tremendous purplish-pink spring bloom followed by dark RED leaves in the spring that mature to a rich green-red in late summer. This variety is self-fruitful, very productive, and low chill - needing only 200-300 hours to bloom successfully. US Patent 13503.
