Nectarine Varieties

Nectarine Varieties:

While there are numerous varieties of nectarines, the differences are not easily distinguishable for most consumers.  The biggest difference is colour: nectarines can be divided into two categories: white flesh and yellow flesh.  Nectarines can also be characterized by their pit.  Freestone varieties have flesh that separates easily from the pit, while the flesh of a clingstone variety clings to the pit.

Yellow nectarines should be eaten when soft and juicy, when they yield slightly to gentle palm pressure.  White flesh nectarines are a bit different.  They are sweet when still firm and crunchy and can either be enjoyed that way or allowed to soften.  It’s just a matter of personal preference.
