Nectarines, White

Nectarines and peaches are the same species, except for the fact that nectarines are the product of a recessive gene that makes them smooth skinned. But we have found that their is also a difference in flavor, too, and believe that nectarines are more flavorful. The white nectarines are much sweeter than the yellow variety, and also have a perfumed aroma, which adds to the delight of eating them. We have not found them for sale in supermarkets, or at least they weren’t labeled as being ‘white’, so we usually buy them at farm stores. If we can find a box of ‘seconds’, we always by them, because the amount of waste is generally small, making them a great value. They are great for eating whole, for freezing, in smoothies, and making frozen desserts. We could not find any nutritional information specifically related to white nectarines.
