Fruit Care Tips: Nectarines
DO NOT REFRIGERATE for 24-48 hours
Nectarine Care Tips: Look for nectarines that have a sweet smell and feel slightly firm. BEFORE PUTTING THEM IN THE FRIDGE take your nectarines out of the box and spread them out on your counter or table at room temperature until they reach your desired level of ripeness (Approx. 1-3 days). Keep an eye on them as they begin to ripen. Once ripened put them in the refrigerator for up to one week. Look through your nectarines and remove any bruised or soft fruit for immediate use, just like you would do with bananas, apples, and other fruit. Let the nectarines air-dry if they are wet from condensation after coming out of our refrigerated truck. DO NOT wrap your fruit in plastic film or plastic bags because this will lead to your fruit becoming rotten, due to condensation from the fruit being trapped inside. Our nectarines are plump and delicious and we know you will love them as much as we do!
