Sweet and juicy peaches and nectarines are a summertime treat. While eating them in a polite fashion can be a challenge, their limited season means you can’t let that dissuade you. Hop into them while you can.

There are a number of varieties to choose from across the season, with white, yellow and clingstone all at their peak in the warmer months. Look for lesser known varieties like the flat-looking “Doughnut peach”, or the deliciously sweet “Italian nectarines”.
