Mango nectarines are available during the summer.
All nectarines are genetically identical to peaches with the exception of the trait that gives peaches their fuzz. They are classified botanically as Prunus persica nucipersica, a stone fruit species within the genus, Prunus, alongside cherries, apricots, plums and almonds. Mango nectarines do not actually have any mango parentage, rather they are the natural hybrid result of crossing two heirloom pale-skinned nectarine cultivars that occurred as budsports on red-skin nectarine trees within the same season. Budsports are rare occurrences, a single tree branch producing a mutation of a new fruit or a fruit of another era. A nectarine known as Honeykist is often mislabeled as a mango nectarine, though they are a completely different nectarine.
The mango nectarine is similar in shape to a plum: petit, rounded, yet somewhat heart-shaped with a singular longitudinal groove running into the fruit's stem end. Its skin is smooth, golden yellow with slight blushes of pale green. The fruit produces potent aromatics of tropical flora and fruit. Its flesh deep butternut yellow in color, soft and overtly juicy with a melting quality and flavors that represent the fruit's namesake: bright layers of mango on the forefront, balanced by a sweet tart finish reminiscent of yellow nectarines.
All nectarines are native to China, where the first nectarine evolved as a mutation on a peach tree. The Mango nectarine was developed in the late 20th century by fruit grower, David Kamada of Ito Fruit Company in Reedley, California. Kamada has acknowledged that yellow-skinned and fleshed nectarines preceded many red-skinned varieties that are the common market varieties today. These fruits are often Central Asian and European in origin, with names such as John Rivers, Gower, Quetta, Maria's Gold, a Uzbekistan variety and the legendary golden nectarine of Samarkand. Yellow-skinned and fleshed nectarine trees can be found in nurseries and the fruits, themselves, randomly at farmers markets and specialty markets.
