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. Not likely to fully ripen in cool summer areas. US Patent 13503.

After one year it's already fruiting.

This is such an amazing fruit tree. With a bit of good fertilizer, sun and decent drainage I got this tree around may 2023 and not even a year later April 2024 it's already producing small fruits that will be ready to harvest in August/Sept! Crazy fast and beautiful dark purple leaves 😍. Will keep and maintain this nectaplum for years and years to come.

Beautiful tree

Bare root tree arrived on time and in great shape. Within a week it was showing life, including some flower buds. I'm very impressed!

Vigorous grower on Viking root-stock.

Having tasted nectaplum in California I purchased this tree in 10" sleeve to see if it can survive PLC in PNW with minimal spray protocol. Received the tree well packaged without any damaged, planted it in a 15 gallon pot on 7/28 (see Picture 1). This tree has grown like weed in just 2 months (Picture 2), I had read Viking root stock was vigorous its amazing to see its capability. I see a few fruit buds and hoping it will set one or two fruit next year. Minus one star for poor communication and 2 weeks delay in shipping this tree out (excluding one week when it was hot and not conducible for shipping young trees).
