Nectarines are the smoother versions of peaches, a type of seasonal stone fruit that grows on trees in warmer climates. Their firm skin makes them ideal for chopping up as a snack or into salads, or even for grilling. Nectarines can also be eaten raw, as long as they have been washed, apart from their pit which should be discarded.
