description for "Peach and Nectarine: Prunus persica var. nectarina 'Mericrest'"

'Mericrest' is just the hardiest dwarf nectarine around. It grows no more than 8-10 feet high, depending on your climate, so a person of average height can reach high enough to pluck almost every one of its fruits. Fruit combines juicy, delicious flavor with fuzzless skin. Self-pollinating. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
