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.
