A medium sized nectarine only has 60 calories!
A nectarine is just a fuzzless variety of peach.
Nectarines are a good source of beta-carotene, vitamin C, lutein, potassium, and fiber.
Shopping and Storage
When shopping for nectarines, look for ones that are fragrant and give a little bit to the touch. Avoid soft spots, bruising, and wrinkling.
Store in a plastic bag in the refrigerator, and they will keep up to four or five days.
Nectarines are delicious on their own, sliced over a salad, with some honey and yogurt, or even grilled.
