Summer Fruits: Nectarines

How to choose: Look for aromatic, unblemished nectarines that yield slightly to the touch. Avoid nectarines that are overly soft or hard.

How to store: Store fully ripe nectarines in a sealed container or plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to five days. Be sure they have ripened first, as they will not ripen in the refrigerator.
