Nectarines Punnet (white flesh) - Nectarines are stone fruit that are similar in size to apples. They are believed to have origins in China and are called stone fruit because of the seed in the centre of the fruit that is not eaten. Nectarines are rich in many vitamins, minerals, and beneficial plant compounds. Nectarines also offer smaller amounts of magnesium, phosphorus, iron, and some B vitamins. In addition, they’re packed with antioxidants — beneficial plant compounds that combat oxidative damage and help protect your body against aging and disease. The fresher and riper the fruit, the more antioxidants it contains.
