Inventory, cs : 0
The Carmen Miranda nectarine is a rounded stone fruit with a single central groove. Like many other nectarine varieties, the Carmen Miranda has the classic smooth skin with hues of ruby, pink and gold throughout. The tender yellow flesh clings tightly to a pit at the center of the fruit. When ripe the fruit is very aromatic and sweet with a hint of acidity.
Late spring through summer.
Nectarines, botanical name, Prunus persica nucipersica, are a smooth-skinned variety of the peach. Also known as "shaved peach" or "fuzzless peach," nectarines have a recessive allele, causing them to be hairless; contrary to the belief that they are a hybrid between the peach and the plum.
Enjoy out of hand for a healthy between meal snack. Raw, jellied, cooked or candied, nectarines are a sweet treat. Prepare and serve like peaches. The skin is edible but may be removed.
The nectarine is one of the oldest of all fruits and is believed to be native to China. Nectarines are a member of the rose family and closely related to peaches and almonds. The nectarine, Prunus persica var. nucipersica, is a genetic variant of the common peach and is not a cross between a peach and a plum, as some believe.
Developed in the city of Modesto, California by a private grower, the Carmen Miranda nectarine is locally grown at Fitzgerald's Premium Ripe Tree Fruit in Reedley, California.
