Avalon™ Nectarine on Bailey (Spring 2022)


An early-ripening, exceptionally sweet nectarine. . Also known as NJN 101.

This is a vigorous, upright tree with bacterial spot resistance. The bloom is showy and red, and dormant flower buds will tolerate temperatures as low as -20°F. Nectarines are self-fertile and no pollinizer is required.

Avalon™ is a new and improved early nectarine that ripens a few days after Eastern Glo (or 10 days before Redhaven). The fruit is very firm with a yellow flesh that clings to the pit. It is unusually large and sweet for an early ripening fruit.

This nectarine was developed by Rutgers University and released in 2013. It is an improvement on Eastern Glo, one of its breeding parents.
