Nectarines are almost genetically identical to peaches, just without the fuzzy skin! Garnish a fava bean hummus; combine with yogurt for breakfast; make a blueberry nectarine cobbler.

Galpin Family Farms

A second-generation family farm located in Southern California, Galpin is run as efficiently as possible, but without the use of toxic pesticides or chemical fertilizers. A wide variety of stone fruit is picked and packed directly from the tree, which ensures maximum freshness and minimizes the possibility of bruising or the transfer of any mold or bacteria from other surfaces. Their freshness and holistic growing practices have made them a favorite at local farmer’s markets.

Ripen on the counter for up to three days (place in a paper bag to speed this process), then move to the crisper drawer for up to a week.
