Fresh Yellow Nectarine
Country Of Origin: Turkey
Yellow nectarines are available during the summer months.
Yellow nectarines are sweet and fruity with the perfect amount of acid, displaying the best flavour spectrum of not just a stone fruit but of all fruits.
Nectarines have a sweet flavour well suited for fresh and cooked preparations, including grilling, poaching, baking, roasting, or sautéing. The fruits can be consumed straight, out of hand, with the skin on, or sliced and eaten with sugar or cream as a dessert. Nectarines can also be tossed into green salads, mixed into fruit bowls, layered over toast and bruschetta, topped over ice cream, blended into sorbet, or chopped into salsa.
Nectarines are an excellent source of vitamin C to strengthen the immune system and vitamin A to maintain healthy organ functioning. The fruits also contain some fibre to regulate the digestive tract, potassium to balance fluid levels within the body, folate to develop red blood cells, and other amounts of zinc, magnesium, copper, phosphorus, calcium, B vitamins, and vitamins E and K. It is important to note that Nectarine pits contain cyanide compounds, considered toxic when ingested in large quantities, and should not be consumed.
