Nectarines are directly related to peaches and are also self pollinating, as are apricots. Because peaches and apricot trees bloom at different times, you can not cross pollinate the two. They don't require a cross pollinator but if you want one then get a second variety of each.
Nectarines grow best in full sun -- meaning at least six hours per day of sun, if not more. If you're planting a nectarine near a home or a building, a southern exposure is best.
Most of the nectarines in the United States are grown in the San Joaquin Valley, just south of Fresno, California.
Many people don't realize that nectarines can be grown in Michigan, but they are as easy to grow as peaches . They are also self fertile so only one tree is required to set fruit.
