Absolutely bursting with juicy nectar-sweet flavor, it’s no wonder that Independence is considered the most widely planted nectarine in North America. Top-ranked flavor is the primary reason this nectarine is so beloved, but another equally important quality is the incredible cold-hardiness of Independence! This is one of very few nectarines that has the ability to grow in climates ranging from California to New York! Independence produces fruit at a young age and typically blooms late in spring to avoid frosts. The exceptionally sweet nectarines ripen by mid-summer after attaining their beautiful bright, candy-red coloring. Independence has the perfect combination of cold-hardiness and delicious flavor, consistently ranking it among the best nectarine trees of all time!
