Calories In Nectarines


Calories in nectarines

The calorie content of a nectarine is low with only 30 calories in a half cup weighing 69 grams according to the CDC.

The nutritional content is also very low with only small amounts of vitamins and minerals.

Despite the sweet flavor, the carbohydrates are also low at 7 grams which includes the 5 grams of sugars.

Choosing a ripe nectarine

A ripe nectarine is fragrant and slightly yielding, not hard to the touch. Watch out for bruised areas or mold.

Depending on the variety, the skin may vary from medium yellow to bright red blush.

This fruit should be used as soon as possible when ripe, as it will only store for 5 days in the refrigerator.

Serving nectarines

Most people just wash them and eat them raw as soon as they are ripe for the fresh flavor.

But they can be sliced or chopped for fresh fruit salad, used on top of yogurt, cereal, custards, puddings, or ice cream.

They can be baked in pies and tarts, served poached as a side dish, or made into chutneys, fruit salsas, jams, jellies, preserved whole, and dried.

A gift from China

This fruit is considered a fuzz-free peach cultivar, originating in China several thousand years ago, and spread throughout the world via Persia and Mediterranean countries.

Like peaches, there are both white and yellow fleshed, cling or freestone cultivars.

Organically grown

Along with peaches, these trees can be difficult to grow organically, but you may be able to find heirloom or hardy ones for your area.
