Nectarines are a fleshy stone fruit, in season in South Australia from November to March with earlier ripening of fruit from the Riverland area. There are a range of varieties of nectarines, including ‘Swanzee’, ‘Artic Sweet’, ‘Snow Queen’, ‘Firebrite’, ‘August Glo’ and ‘Flaming Red’. Some of these names are most likely taken from the fact that nectarines are sold by their flesh colour: yellow-fleshed or white-fleshed.
Nectarine and peach trees are almost indistinguishable, with some confusing the two fruits. Nectarines are similar in appearance to peaches, but with smooth rather than fuzzy skin. The fruit can have freestones, where the flesh can be separated easily from the stone, or clingstones, where it is harder to remove the stone.
When selecting nectarines to purchase, look for those that are fragrant, firm and plump and with a smooth, shiny exterior. Nectarines are high in vitamin A and C and can be eaten fresh or cooked in preserves and pies.
Eko Fresh Fruits, McLaren Vale Orchards, Ashbourne Valley Orchards, Cooinda Proprietors and B&A Andonopoulos are all stalls at Adelaide Showground Farmers’ Market where you can find nectarines.

We're doing our bit to help you stop using single use plastic bags. You can now get Onya reusable Produce Bags, an easy replacement for single use plastic fruit and vegetable bags, made from recycled plastic drink bottles from the Market Information Stand.
These light (only 10 grams per bag) but deceptively strong mesh bags can hold up to 2 kilos of produce and feature a gussett and drawsting tie. Available in a 5 pack the produce bags stuff down into a brightly coloured pouch the size of your fist when not in use. The bags can be washed simply with a cool water handwash when the need arises, or they can be put on a cool gentle cycle in the washing machine. Available at the Information Stand: $14 for members and $16 for non-members.
Can you spare four hours on Sunday morning once a month? We’re looking for friendly folk who will help at our Information Stall at our Adelaide Showground Farmers' Market. Training will be provided. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest.
