Mango Nectarine

Availability: Starting

Source: California

Handling Tips: 36° F

General Information: Despite its name, this fruit isn't related to the mango. It is actually a cross between two varieties of pale nectarine. It is named for its texture and flavor which blends both mango and nectarine. Sweet, exotic and perfumey, they are a wonderful summer fruit, grown exclusively in California. At an immature stage the Mango Nectarine is a bright green color turning to a vivid yellow when ripe. Serve sliced in a fresh salad, in yogurt or ice cream or simply eat out of hand. The mango nectarine's season is brief, just 2 or 3 weeks in June and July, so enjoy these sweet, aromatic, California-grown beauties when you see them.
