ITEM REFERENCE SHEET - NECTARINES TM

VARIETIES The fruit we call nectarines is virtually identical to the fruit we call peaches, except for one noticeable feature. The skin of most peaches contains fuzz, while the skin of nectarines is smooth. The same mutation responsible for the smooth skin is also responsible for the spicier taste and slightly smaller size of nectarines. Nectarines and peaches both grow from the same parent peach trees, which have been known to produce examples of both fruits at the same time. Essentially there are no nectarine trees, only peach trees with a genetic mutation. Nectarines are similar to peaches when it comes to their pits. Some nectarines contain freestone pits, while others are considered clinging. Freestone nectarine pits, which are not as convoluted as peach pits, can be removed from the fruit easily. Cling-style pits, on the other hand, are deeply embedded in the flesh and must be removed mechanically. Some consider nectarines to be more flavorful than peaches, and much easier to eat. Nectarines do have a spicier quality than peaches, and the flesh is generally firmer. Similar to peaches, nectarines can be divided into two groups: Yellow Flesh Nectarines and White Flesh Nectarines

SIZES Nectarines are sized according to the approximate number of nectarines that can be contained in a standard box; the number attached to the nectarine corresponds to the number of fruits in the standard bushel carton. The following is a table of the nectarine sizes we typically carry:
