Nectarines

Come visit Peters Orchards beginning in July to taste the sweetest, home grown nectarines around!  We allow our nectarines to stay on the tree as long as possible so that when you visit our market, you can be sure that they are the freshest tree-ripened nectarines around. Our juicy and sweet nectarines make a delicious and healthy snack for you and your family.  You can be sure that they have not been shipped or stored prior to your eating them! Often they will have just been picked the day you visit us! Taste and see the freshest fruit around!
