Product Description

Sweet, delicious nectarine is a closely related fruit species to peach. As in peach, it too can be described as a drupe (fruit flesh surrounded by central solitary, hard seed) belonging within the genus; Prunus; a large group of tree fruits which also includes plums, damson, almonds, etc. This novel fruit is appreciated worldwide for its juicy, fragrant aroma, and unique taste. It thought to have originated in China and from where spread to Central Asia and Persia to Europe through ancient silk route.

Internally, its flesh is juicy; and depending upon the variety it can be creamy yellow or white in color with centrally placed single, hard seed (stone). The seed is inedible. Depending upon the seed that is free or firmly attached to the surrounding flesh, nectarines can be classified into free-stone or clinging varieties.
