Nectarines
Get the Flash Player to see this player.
The nectarine is a sweet and juicy stone fruit very similar to the peach. Unlike the peach, nectarine skin is smooth and shiny. There are two different varieties of nectarines in cultivation - white nectarines, which have a red skin and a white interior, and golden nectarines, with yellowish flesh.
Nectarines are very soft and easily damaged, and they have a very short shelf-life. Ripe nectarines are fragrant and give slightly when gently squeezed. Avoid those that are wrinkled or bruised.
Ripe nectarines will keep in plastic bags in the crisper section of the fridge for about 5 days. Unripe will ripen at room temperature over a few days.
for the most flavousome tasting fruit always eat them at room temperature.

Cooking Tips:
Nectarine slices complement peppery salad greens. Make a salad with rocket leaves, roast almonds, avocado and tomato. Dress with a vinagerette and top with nectarine slices. Nectarines can be poached like peaches but there's nothing to beat them straight from the fruit bowl.
