Sliced Dried Nectarines
Product code: Dr10
The name nectarine means etymologically: sweet nectar. The Prunus Persica or peach, at the origin of the nectarine, appeared in the north of China 3000 years ago and was introduced in the West, through Persia and the Silk Road, by Alexander the Great.
Nectarine is not the result of a cross between peach and plum. It is simply a natural mutation of the Persian apple.
Dried nectarines and dried peaches are similar in size and texture. They can be used interchangeably in most recipes. From a nutritional standpoint, there are some minor differences in these two fruits.
