White nectarines are slightly sweeter that yellow nectarines, in fact, the white nectarine tastes just as sweet right after it is harvested as it does when it has softened, while a yellow nectarine gradually sweetens as it becomes soft.
The flesh of a white nectarine is usually light pink or whitish with bright pink radiating from the center pit.
Melissa's Organic label reads: "Melissa's Certified Organic Produce is free of artificial or synthetic fertilizers and full of unforgettable, great tasting flavor. Our farmers use traditional earth-friendly farming methods inspected by a nationally recognized agency to verify organic authenticity."
When selecting ripe nectarines, look for skin with a creamy white background and no hint of green. Like traditional nectarines the amount of red or pink will differ with each variety, but has no bearing on the ripeness.
