Nectarine peaches, (or "nectarines"), are characterized by smooth and thin skin. The pulp, with a crunchy consistency, can be yellow (the most common), white or red streaked, with a more or less sugary and aromatic taste, depending on the variety and the harvesting period. In addition to Emilia Romagna, other production regions are Puglia (with very early varieties, already in early May), Basilicata, Campania and Sicily. Nectarine peaches are harvested by hand, still unripe in order to withstand the subsequent processing steps (calibration, selection, packaging, transport, etc.). To mature them after purchase, just keep them at room temperature inside a paper bag for 2-3 days.
