nectarines

Season: July to August

Description: The nectarine is actually a cultivated type of peach - they belong to the same species. Several genetic studies have concluded that nectarines are created due to a recessive gene. As with peaches, nectarines can be white or yellow, and clingstone or freestone. On average, nectarines are slightly smaller and sweeter than peaches, but with much overlap. The lack of skin fuzz can make nectarine skins appear more reddish than those of peaches, contributing to the fruit's plum-like appearance. The lack of down on the skin of nectarines also means their skin is more easily bruised than peaches. The first recorded mention in English is from 1616, but they had probably been grown much earlier within the native range of the peach in central and eastern Asia.
