About nectarines 

Boost your fruit intake with delicious and nutritious nectarines. Believed to have been cultivated in China over 4,000 years ago and brought to Europe via the ancient silk route, these plant products grow on deciduous trees that flower in early spring and fruit in June. Nectarines, which are also identified as Prunus Persica, are a peach variety that belongs to the Rosaceae family of plants. They are also categorized as stone fruits or drupes, each of which is formed with edible flesh containing an inedible hard seed. Plums, peaches, cherries, and apricots are also drupes.

While nectarines look a lot like peaches, they can be differentiated from the latter by their smoother, glossier skin, which lacks fuzzy trichomes or plant hairs. Additionally, they are smaller in size. Visually, they are rounded fruits that are mostly red with green and yellow accents. In its optimum state of ripeness, a nectarine tastes sweet and satisfying. This fruit has several varieties, and key differences among them include white flesh, yellow flesh, red flesh, clingstones, and freestones. 

You can enjoy nectarines by simply washing them well and eating them fresh. There are many other foods you can prepare with this tasty ingredient. Spices that pair well with this fruit include cinnamon, cardamon, ginger, and nutmeg.
