Description

The sweetest cherry yet

Days to Maturity: 65 from transplant

Indeterminate

Ultra-sweet, highly productive, disease resistant, and early to mature—it's no exaggeration to say that Nectar has it all. This cherry type is a little powerhouse of fabulous flavor and over-the-top yields, just what gardeners like us are always looking for.

The best-tasting cherry yet, Nectar is very low in acids and high in sugars, so you get a honey-sweet crunch that's really mouthwatering. Most cherries are big on looks and short on flavor, but not these ½-ounce fruits. They appear in clusters of about 18 to 20 on vigorous indeterminate plants, so stake or cage this plant well and get ready for generous harvests all summer long.

Start seeds indoors 5 to 6 weeks before the last frost date. Plant outdoors when danger of frost is past and night temperatures consistently remain above 55 degrees Fahrenheit. If an unexpected late frost is forecasted, protect young plants with plastic sheeting or other cover. Set plants 2 to 2½ feet apart.

sweet/plentiful

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I grow these every year. I had also grown the superset 100s, but then I realized that Nectars were better. One thing to know about Nectar. The stems are bendable when young, but don't try to bend them after they've settled in. They will snap.

All around great cultivar.

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I like snacking while gardening and cherry tomatoes are one of my favourite. Decided to give the Nectar hybrids a try and was not disappointed. This is going to be the fourth year growing them and each plant consistently produces around 10 Lbs. of super sweet and flavourful fruits over the local growing season which is only 3 to 4 months here in Alberta, Canada (zone 3b). The only specific care tip for this cultivar is to trellis the plant with sturdy supports. The vines can grow around 5 to 6 feet long in my garden.

Stand aside Sungold, Nectar is here!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

As a long time fan of Sungold I grow it each year. Last year I added Park's Nectar to my garden. I grew both. And while both plants were very healthy and prolific, the yield and consistency of Nectar was superior. The flavor is sweeter, and is indeed, the sweetest cherry I've tasted. I will be growing nectar again no questions asked.

Seeds grow well

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I have purchased item (seeds) from this company consistently for the last 5 years and everything I plant (almost) grows and produces perfectly - I start everything indoors (February /March - in Ohio) and they are perfectly healthy seeds every time.
