Zee Sweet® White Nectarine, also known as Snow Queen, is one of the sweetest and juiciest of all nectarines, featuring snow white flesh and freestone fruit. These stone fruit nectarines are distinct in their smooth and shiny skin, which showcases an orange blush that gently fades to red. What sets them apart is their exquisite white flesh, which doesn't cling to the pit, providing a juicy and sweet taste with a subtle touch of acidity. The flavour profile is delicate and refreshingly sweet.
To ensure the optimal ripeness and flavour of Zee Sweet White Nectarines, it's recommended to keep them in the refrigerator once they're ripe and ready to be savoured. If they need further ripening, store them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Nectarines and peaches are known to ripen best at room temperature.
FUN FACTS & TIPS
Interestingly, white-fleshed peaches, such as Zee Sweet White Nectarines, are highly favoured in Asian countries like Singapore, China, and Japan, owing to their lower acidity. In contrast, the yellow-fleshed varieties are traditionally preferred by Europeans and North Americans. Furthermore, peaches and nectarines vary not only in color but also in the way their pits interact with the flesh. Clingstone varieties have the flesh adhering to the pit, while Freestone types easily separate from the pulp.
