Nectarines - white
White nectarines are a summer stone fruit similar to yellow nectarines and peaches but with a white flesh instead of the more typical yellow. There are many varieties of white nectarine but they are rarely referred to by their variety name. The difference between white and yellow nectarines is recognised by the balance of sugar and acid. White nectarines have less acidity than yellow nectarines and therefore lack the slightly sour "tang" characteristic of a yellow nectarine.

To Buy:
Nectarines are very soft and easily damaged, and they have a very short shelf-life. Ripe nectarines are fragrant and give slightly when gently squeezed. Avoid those that are wrinkled or bruised.
To Store:
White nectarines should be stored at room temperature until ripe, then refrigerated. The fruit will remain at that stage of ripeness and can be refrigerated for up to seven days.
