NECTARINES

The nectarine is the smooth-skinned relative of the peach. Just like our peaches, we pick our nectarine trees more often than other growers. This ensures that each nectarine is picked at the perfect stage for truly tree ripe flavor.

SUMMERWHITE NECTARINE

Traditionally summerwhites have a mild to sugary sweet flavor and lack the slightly tangy undertone of traditional yellow nectarines. Summerwhite nectarines are ripe when purchased and can be enjoyed crunchy or soft. The flavor will be sweet and flavorful, so try a bite when the texture is just right for you.

When are nectarines in season?

California nectarines are in season in the summer, making them the perfect treat for a warm day.

Our organic harvest season is slightly shorter than our traditional season. many nectarine varieties come into season at different times over the summer, so don't hesitate to ask if you have questions about a particular nectARINe.

Tips to enjoy your fruit to the fullest

CRUNCHY

HMC_plum

Nectarines are ripe when picked. If you prefer a crunchy texture similar to an apple, eat your nectarines the day you bring them home.

MIDDLE OF THE ROAD

Maybe crunchy isn’t your thing, but dripping juice isn’t either, then you are a middle-of-the-roader. Once your nectarine has a slight give in the palm of your hand, it’s ready to enjoy.

JUICY

When your fruit gives easily to slight pressure from your thumb it’s full of flavor and juicy beyond belief. Grab a napkin and enjoy your yellow or white nectarine.
