The fruit of the nectarine is called with the same name as the tree and it is a drupe with a spherical shape, an attractive color with yellow and reddish tones with an exquisite pulp for many. Its skin is smooth and differs from peaches because the pit is not attached to the flesh, but rather appears loose.

The nectarine is a fruit tree belonging to the Rosaceae family resulting from a mutation of the common peach tree and native to China.

Chile is one of the main stone fruit exporting countries. It supplies, in counter-season, the markets of the northern hemisphere, but since these fruits are highly perishable, they must be stored under refrigeration to reach their final destination.


Nectarine is one of the fleshy fruits that has the highest content of vitamin B3. This vitamin participates in the metabolism of nutrients, enhancing the breakdown of cholesterol and therefore helps to reduce its level in the blood.

Full of vitamin A, they help improve vision, skin, hair and the immune system, as they also provide vitamins C and B3 that help reduce cholesterol levels.

Nectarines also help to improve slow transit, as they contain fiber and pectin.
