Lord Napier Nectarine Tree 

Lord Napier (Prunus 'Lord Napier') is an old English nectarine variety, first introduced in 1860.  One of the earliest and largest of all the nectarines. The skin has a very dark crimson cheek in full sun. Its flesh is very white, melting and very juicy. The flesh separates well from the stone (freestone). (Sawbridgeworth 1860)

Type of Nectarine: Eating

Time of Picking: Early August

Fertility:  Lord Napier is a self-fertile nectarine, therefore only one tree is required for pollination to provide fruit.

Rootstock Available:

This tree is available on a Semi-Vigorous St Julien Rootstock meaning the tree will reach an ultimate height of 3.6 metres.

Lord Napier is supplied in a 7 or 12 litre container which means it can be planted at any time of year, not forgetting that regular watering is a pre-requisite especially in dry and warm/hot weather. 

Although the 7 and 12 Litre Lord Napier Nectarine trees are the same age, the 12 litre are generally taller and thicker than the 7 Litre Nectarine. Once the trees have reached maturity, any difference between the two will hardly be noticeable to "normal people". The Nectarine Police raiding your garden with CSI Lord Napier in tow maybe able to tell you what size pot it was delivered in.  

Our nectarine trees are grown in the UK so they are well-suited to UK climatic conditions.  

We will include a message card included at no additional cost if required.

Quick Fruit Tree Links
Take a look at our 
TOP SELLING FRUIT TREES, Wet ground issues then choose a PEAR TREE first, followed by APPLE TREES. For more information on pollination please look at  POLLINATION EXPLAINED or choosing the CORRECT POLLINATION PARTNER

Fruit Tree Life Expectancy
Most fruit trees will give you AT LEAST 40 years of fruit. Pears can go to 70. Records of 200 year old trees exist but this is the exception, not the rule.

Do I Need To Stake My Bare Root Fruit Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you. 

Growing Our Trees In The UK
To date, we have checked the passports of our trees and none seem to have sneaked off for non UK holidays so all are UK grown.

Climate Change 
Warm and wet conditions from Climate Change have increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy.

Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it. 

Important Nectarine Fruit Tree information
All our Nectarine trees are delivered in containers offering the advantage of you being able to plant ALL YEAR ROUND. By leaving them in the container or pot outside over winter (October to March) you run the risk of killing them unless you put them in a heated conservatory or greenhouse.

We advise planting as soon as you receive them unless there is a frost.
