With a smooth, golden-yellow skin filled with red blushes, nectarines have a wonderfully sweet aroma. You can enjoy fresh Del Monte® nectarines much the same as you would a peach — in pies, cobblers or fresh fruit salads — but there’s no need to peel them because they don’t have any fuzz. Nectarines also make delightful pastries and tarts, and make a nice addition to salsa as well.

Choose brightly colored and fragrant fruits that yield to gentle pressure, especially along the seam. Like peaches, the amount of red blush on their cheeks depends on the variety, and is not always an indicator of ripeness. Avoid rock hard or greenish fruit as well as fruit that is too soft or shriveled.
Insert a knife blade into the stem end of nectarine. Slice into halves lengthwise to the pit, turning the nectarine while slicing. Remove the knife blade, then twist the halves and pull apart. Remove the nectarine pit using the tip of a paring knife; discard.
If purchased unripe, nectarines can be stored at room temperature until they ripen. Place ripe nectarines in the refrigerator, where they will keep for two to three days.
