Peaches and Nectarines
There are many peach varieties: they may have yellow flesh, white flesh with velvety skin and more or less prominent red veining close to the stone. We mainly grow early and medium-early varieties in our orchards.
Clingstone peaches, the flesh of which sticks to the stone, differ from freestone peaches, in which the stone does not stick to the flesh. Nectarines, known as walnut peaches, differ from the peach in that their skins are smooth.
This fruit has few calories and a low glycaemic index, contains a high quantity of water, is rich in vitamins, especially vitamin E, vitamin C and vitamin B3, antioxidants such as beta-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin and mineral salts such as potassium, magnesium and phosphorus.
The peach (Prunus Persica) is native to China and belongs to the Rosaceae family. Today, Italy is the leading global producer, together with Spain.
