Honey Pearls™ Nectacot™ Tree

Description
Perfect Pollinator for Sugar Pearls
We spent years looking for the best match to our favorite apricot, Sugar Pearls, so you can imagine our elation when we discovered this scrumptious variety was the perfect pollinator! Sweetly aromatic, richly flavorful and juicy, this new nectacot has its own attributes. Very late bloom time avoids damaging late frost which leads to heavy yields of crack-free fruit. Delectable nectacots have ambrosial, deep orange flesh and red-blushed skin, ripening to perfection in July. Zones 4-7. PPAF.

NOTE: We are unable to ship our trees to PO Boxes at this time.

Why buy a Standard Deluxe or Li'l Big Deluxe package - Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. Quik-Cal Pelletized Calcium, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula and a premium tree guard to protect the trunk for gnawing pests, weed trimmers and mowers. Li'l-BIG™ Deluxe fruit trees also include our innovative tree support, recommended for all Li'l-BIG trees.
