I’m Dreaming of a White Solstice...

As the summer solstice draws nigh, visions of beautiful white orbs are starting to dance in the minds of fruit lovers everywhere. Are these spheres celestial bodies, aligning for the dawn of a new season? No! They’re delicious white peaches and nectarines that have started appearing in The FruitGuys’ fruit crates!

These white-fleshed beauties have long been a favorite among home gardeners, but they didn’t start to make their way into commercial production until the 1980s because they were simply too delicate to ship. Years of cultivation and experimentation with natural growing methods finally yielded varieties that were hardy enough to travel but that maintained the superb flavor and sweetness of their more fragile ancestors.

nectarinesWhite peaches and nectarines are typically sweeter than their yellow counterparts because they have lower acidity and therefore lack the “tang” of the yellow-fleshed varieties.
