Featured Video - Nectarines
The nectarine is a sweet and juicy stone fruit very similar to the peach. Unlike the peach, nectarine skin is smooth and shiny. There are two different varieties of nectarines in cultivation - white nectarines, which have a red skin and a white interior, and golden nectarines, with yellowish flesh.
