Most of the Yellow Nectarine varieties in season are now “free-stone” types that easily separate from the pit. The flavor is quite nice! Yellow Nectarines are ready to eat when the fruit gives just slightly to a gentle squeeze on the palm of your hand. Best advice to have a juicy-sweet eating experience? Don’t refrigerate your Nectarines.
Did you know that Nectarines do not gain any sugar content through ripening after they are picked? However, as a Yellow-flesh Nectarine softens and the juices release within the flesh – the fruit tastes sweeter.
