The Nectarine Tree has been around for at least 2000 years but is considered a rather new fruit, first appearing in 1720 when found growing between a row of peach trees in Virginia. Charles Darwin noticed that peach trees spontaneously produced nectarines and that this also happened the other way around. Nectarines have often been described as "fuzz-less peaches", which is true. The flesh is sweet, succulent, and firmer than peaches. However, nectarine trees are almost identical to the peach in appearance, culture, and care. Nectarine plants are self-fertile and freestone. The fruit is fragrant, brightly colored, sweet and wonderful to eat fresh or to be used in cooking. Nectarines contain a good amount of vitamins A and C.
