How to Store

Store unripe nectarine in paper bag in a cool place on the counter for up to two days. Store ripe nectarines in the refrigerator crisper or drawer away from vegetables for up to three to five days.

How to Select

Select fruit that is fragrant, brightly colored and gives slightly to the touch. Nectarines have a yellow skin with a red blush. The red blush on the nectarine skin is related to the variety and not ripeness. Do not select fruit with bruises, blemishes, or that are hard or green.

Usage Tips

Thoroughly wash a nectarine before eating or cutting. Nectarines can discolor when cut, so if using in a salad, treat cut surfaces with an ascorbic acid color keeper such as pineapple juice or lemon juice. Nectarines are great to eat out of hand, in salads or in desserts.
