A popular, large, yellow freestone that’s firm when ripe, but oh, so juicy. The taste is sweet, but tangy, and very rich. Nectarines are large and brightly colored. There are so many, they require thinning for the best quality crop. Good for fresh eating, canning and pies. Ripens in late August.
Quickly becoming one of our best-known and most popular varieties, the Fantasia is a large, tapered heirloom variety. It's deep golden flesh is amazingly sweet and smooth, and its marbled bright red skin makes for an exceptionally beautiful presentation. Like many of our more unique and heirloom varieties, the Fantasia is a far more fragile fruit than most farms will even consider growing. Like the Suncrest peach that often ripens at the same time, the Fantasia is easily bruised when allowed to ripen properly on the branch, but we're sure you'll agree that the taste is well worth the risk.
