Plump and juicy, our organic nectarines are ripened to honeyed sweetness in the Mediterranean sun. There’s more to do with a perfectly ripe nectarine than eat it as it is. Add to a smoothie or fruit salad, or pair their delicate flesh with savoury foods, from refreshing salads to cured meat.

Cooking

After you’ve eaten your fill of the raw fruit, halve, brush with honey and butter and bake until caramelised – about 20 mins. Enjoy with yoghurt, mascarpone or vanilla ice cream. Nectarines’ fragrant sweetness also goes beautifully in a cobbler or crumble, or elegantly arranged in a galette.

Storage

Ripen in a fruit bowl, then keep in the fridge for a few days. Delivered fresh from the farm, so wash before eating.

Class

Our nectarines are sold as class 2. This means that they might not look cosmetically perfect, but they are grown for the very best flavour. (We have to tell you this to satisfy some EU rules).

Country of origin

Grown in Spain.

BBQ tips

Griddled nectarines are simplicity themselves. Halve and stone them, lightly brush with some plain oil, place them on the BBQ and griddle them, face-side down, over a medium heat until nicely marked. This should take about 4-5 mins. Resist the temptation to play with them too much or they’ll tend to stick or tear. Flip them and cook for a further 4 mins or so, until softened – the skins will wrinkle and pull away from the flesh when they’re ready. Ideal served with cold yogurt, ice cream, or a few drops of rose water.
