Donut-shaped peaches and nectarines are nothing new. They are a natural result of crossing one peach or nectarine variety with another. The likelihood of an occasional flat selection is common.

Donut-shaped fruit can be traced back in records to 200 BC, but were not considered commercially viable until the late 20th century.

Now, everyone knows how great saucer-shape is. Just think about it. Flat fruit makes them easy to grab hold and eat, doesn’t it? And they taste so good!

This is a self-fruitful variety, but you’ll definitely see a bigger crop with a partner tree. Choose another peach or nectarine variety, or buy 2 Sugar Pie Columnar Nectarine trees.

#ProPlantTips for Care

Sugar Pie Columnar Nectarine requires a full sun location to thrive. Ensure the trees receive at least 6 hours of direct sunlight. The morning sun is preferred, as this has that all-important drying power to keep the leaves healthy.

They need well-drained soil, as well. If you see puddles on your ground that remain long after a rainfall, you’ll want to improve drainage. It’s easy, simply plant in a raised bed or heap up a mound of soil at least 12 to 18 inches high and 3 feet wide. You’ll plant in that mound.

Give a 3 inch layer of mulch spread to 3 feet outside of the canopy. This will help to cut down on evaporation and to keep the roots cool in the hot summer.

Provide a moderate amount of water on a regular basis. Prune to control height in the summer, and to correct the shape in late winter.

Don’t wait to get your unique Sugar Pie Nectarine planted in your yard. Order today!
