How to Grow and Care for Sunglo Nectarine Tree

Sunglo Nectarine Tree (Prunus persica var. nucipersica ‘Sunglo’) Growing Requirements

Hardiness zone 5-8 outdoors
Harvest time August


Plant your Sunglo Nectarine tree in an area with well-draining soil that receives full sun (6 to 8 hours per day). Plant in a hole twice as wide and as deep as the root ball. After planting, cover the ground with a thick layer of mulch, but leave the area near the trunk bare.


Water deeply after planting to settle the roots. During the first few years, you might need to water weekly during the hottest months. Once established, water as needed during the growing season by simply checking the soil about 2 or 3 inches down – if the soil is dry here, it’s time to water.


After the second year, add a nitrogen-based fertilizer in the late spring or early summer.


The best time to prune your Sunglo Nectarine is in its dormant season in winter. Leave one single leader trunk, and prune away any diseased or dead branches. To produce a bigger harvest, thin all crowded branches down to 6 inches apart.
