Nectarines, cousin to the peach, were possibly named after nektar-meaning "drink of the gods".
More than 150 nectarine varieties exist, each one varying slightly in size, shape, taste, texture, and color.
Because nectarines are on the Dirty Dozen, be sure to always pick organic.
Antioxidant Score (ORAC)=750
Choose fragrant, brightly colored nectarines that give slightly to gentle pressure. Ripe fruit should be refrigerated and used within a week.
