Buying Tips

Look for nectarines that are aromatic, firm but not hard, and with a bright, deep coloring. Avoid fruit with wrinkled, cracked skin and spots that show evidence of decay.

Varieties

The most common nectarine variety in North America is the freestone. Among the numerous hybrids, about ten varieties are widely grown for market, including the Sun Grand, available in midsummer, and the late-season September Grand.
