Choose medium-sized nectarines with a firm and smooth skin. Pay attention to the color. The sweetest and best-flavored nectarines are orange-gold. Any traces of yellow or green mean that the nectarine is not ripe.

STORE

Ripe nectarines can be stored in a cool place up to three days and up to one week in the fridge. If you have unripe nectarines, put them in a brown paper and store at room temperature until they become fully ripe.
