Nectarines are not a hybrid fruit, they are peaches that lack the gene for fuzz! Every so often a nectarine can be spotted growing naturally on one of our peach trees. Though they're peaches in disguise, nectarines are regarded commercially as different fruits and the lack of fuzz can make for a very different eating experience. As with peaches, nectarines can be white or yellow, cling-stone or freestone.
On average, they're slightly smaller and sweeter than their cousins and their lack of fuzz can make their skins appear more reddish. The nectarines deeper, sometimes almost purple coloration contributed to a mistaken belief that they are hybrids of peaches and plums. We grow two white-fleshed varieties (Jade & Emeraude) that are typically harvested from June through July.
