Farmers' Market Report July 5, 2013

White Nectarines
Grower: Fitzgerald

Description: White nectarines distinguish themselves from Yellow nectarine varieties in their balance of sugar and acid. White nectarines lack the acidity that yellow nectarines contain, thus they are referred to as sub-acid. Fruits are rounded and slightly heart-shaped with a single central groove. Their skin is paper thin, smooth and blushed with hues of ruby, pink and ivory throughout. The flesh is perfumed with aromatics, overtly juicy when ripe, and creamy in color. A ripe White nectarine’s texture is tender firm with a melting quality, its flavors rich and decadently sweet with baking spice nuances.
