Four new Dwarf Nectarines varieties have been welcomed into the PlantNet® suite under the banner of the Backyard Beauties® Range.

- Royal Gem™ - It is self fertile and has pinkish flesh. It comes from France, a country where passion and food are used in the same sentence! Royal Gem is a medium sized premium quality Nectarine It has deep red skin on a creamy background with unique pinkish white flesh. Royal Gem has firm flesh, fantastic taste, flavour, with a semi freestone and matures in early December.
- Flavortop - Is a popular variety of Nectarine that has been available in Australia for many years - we have just made it a DWARF variety of Nectarine!!! This dwarf version is exactly the same as its full size counterpart but more prolific. It produces large yellow fleshed fruit with a freestone. The fruit has excellent flavour which goes hand in hand with its smooth red skin. Flavortop matures around late January to early February.
- Crimson Baby - is a well known variety of Nectarine. The dwarf version is exclusive to PlantNet, and is exactly the same as its full size counterpart but more prolific. This early season fruit (late November) is completely self fertile and very fruitful. It produces an attractive smooth yellowed skin fruit which is almost covered by a red blush, dusted with light-coloured speckles. The fruit has yellow flesh and is clingstone.
These trees will need staking when young as they crop very heavily. These varieties certainly fit into the Backyard Beauties Range and would be BELLISSIMO in anyone's garden.
Plant them in a tub or a large pot for easy gardening. Not to mention a guarantee the kids will love them!
All varieties grow to a height of 1.5m-2.0m and a width of 1.5m-2.0m.
NONE!!! All varieties are 100% self fertile, which means NO pollinators are required to set fruit.
