The Fantasia nectarine trees require
only 500 hours of chill temperatures in order to start bud formation,
and the Fantasia nectarine tree produces freestone fruits that are
large, if the necessary thinning is performed in the spring orchard
management plan. The Fantasia nectarine tree begins flowering early
in the spring and is vigorous in Southern States, especially in
Texas, where it ripens later in June.
