California nectarines are available from late April and to late August. Almost all of the nectarines available are in California. Chiliean nectarines are available from late December through early March.

Make Nectarines Part of Your 5 A Day Plan

  • Bake peeled, halved, pitted fruit, cut-side up in a baking pan sprinkled with honey and cinnamon and cooked until tender.
  • Grilled nectarines are a wonderful tasty treat! Be sure to brush the fruit with fruit juices and cook until it is heated through.
  • Poached nectarines in fruit juice or wine and cook until tender…a simple, elegant way to end a meal.
  • Nectarines make a good substitute in any recipe that calls for peaches or apricots.
  • Puree ripe nectarines with skim milk, non-fat yogurt, or orange juice for a tasty breakfast treat.
  • Serve pancakes, waffles, or French toast with sliced or chopped nectarines.
  • Add cut up nectarines to your favorite fruit salad.

Serve baked nectarines with baked chicken or ham as delicious side dish.
