Nectarines are very closely related to peaches, but are distinguished by their smooth, rather than fuzzy, skin. The flesh can be either white or yellow and is usually sweeter than peaches. (Read more about nectarines on Wikipedia.)
Nectarines are a great source of fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, niacin, and potassium. One small nectarine contains only 57 calories and contains no fat, cholesterol, or sodium. (See more nectarine nutrition facts at Self.com.)
In general, the nectarines we deliver should be stored in the refrigerator and left out on the counter anywhere from a few hours to a day before being used.
