Nectarine Yellow Flesh
Without a concrete date of origin, it is believed to have appeared at a similar time to the peach, more than 3000 years ago in China. From there it was brought across the ancient trade routes to Persia, where it received its scientific name "PRUNUS PERSICA VAR . NECTARINS ”. Currently world production is concentrated around the Mediterranean basin area. It is a medium-large sized fruit, with a smooth firm skin that has a spectrum of colours. These start from a yellow base with a red over colour, ranging to intense reds all over. It is very elegant, depending on the variety. The flesh is yellow in colour with a consistent firmness and a great capacity for preserving.
Its aromatic and juicy, yet crunchy flesh has an excellent flavour and is pleasing to the palate. It has a good balance of sugar and acidity which, joined with its flavour, makes it one of the most exquisite fruits. Its high water content means that the flesh is very juicy.
Product available from the beginning of May until the beginning of September.
