Originally from China where it was already observed 3 000 years ago, nectarine is considered to be a mutation of its peach ancestor. It ended up on European stalls during the 15th century through the Silk Road linking the East to the West. Sweet, with a subtle aroma and very refreshing, what is sometimes called “shaved peach” or “fuzzless peach”, due to its lack of fuzz or short hairs, is a real treat in summer days. Yellow nectarines have a higher sugar content compared with white ones, but white nectarines taste sweeter due to its lack of acid.
Nectarines are good diet fruits as they barely contribute with energy (40 Kcal on average). Rich in vitamin B3 and carotene, beneficial properties include good skin health, digestion and intestinal transit. Minerals such as copper, zinc, fluorine, magnesium, potassium and calcium are also to be found in nectarines.
