In a word, spectacular! This cross between a nectarine and a plum retains the best traits of both. The flavor is very sweet with just the right amount of spicy. Dark red skin with mottled red and white flesh ripens in August. And the tree itself is gorgeous with pink-purple flowers and glossy dark red leaves that turn greenish in summer. NectaPlum SpiceZee® was developed by the legendary Zaiger’s Inc. Genetics of Modesto. Grows fast! A fabulous choice for every special occasion.
