Lord Napier trees are one of the earliest and also largest-fruiting nectarines, they have been grown very successfully in the UK since the early 1860’s!

Grow in a large pot with lots of John Innes No3 compost and well-rotted manure. When ripened in the full sun the nectarines' skin has a wonderful, dark blush. Every nectarine gives a delicious juicy, white flesh has a melt-in-the-mouth texture.

This tree arrives to you in a 9 litre pot with an excellent network of well-established roots. You can keep your tree in the pot for a few months before re-planting by which time your tree will require a bigger pot and rich soil.
