From Our Family To Yours
The DJ Forry Company has been bringing the juiciest, best tasting nectarines to kitchen tables around the country for years. Like all produce we bring to market, we insist that our farming partners utilize the latest, most up to date farming and harvesting methods to ensure only the best and safest California Nectarines reach your table.
It’s All in the Details. What better way to ring in summer than with juicy California Nectarines. Juicy is the key term here. As far as we’re concerned, there is nothing worse than biting into a beautiful nectarine and not have that wonderful experience of a burst of flavor and juice running down your chin. We take great pains to make sure that you are satisfied with every bite. Once our farmers determine that their nectarines are at the perfect stage of ripeness for harvest, our work has only just begun.
Easier Than Ever. Why not try our new Forry’s Finest Grab N Go pouch? It’s a super-quick way to buy just the right amount of kid-friendly sized, tree-ripe nectarines. You might even want to try our Summer Fruit Trio, our new package that contains a combination of tree-ripened peaches, plums and nectarines. Any way you go, there is no better way to nourish your family…with every bite.
Care and Handling (click open/close)
With Forry’s Finest new Grab N Go pouches, enjoying great-tasting nectarines is in the bag! Nectarines should be juicy and sweet with every bite. Especially when you think about the fact that like peaches, nectarines are 80% water! Once you get your fruit home, we suggest keeping it at room temperature until the fruit yields to gentle pressure in the palm of your hand. Refrigeration is not the best option until your fruit is ready to eat. Once your fruit is fully ripe just place it in the fridge for a couple of hours for a really cool treat.
Health Benefits (click open/close)
Sometimes called a "fuzzless peach," nectarines are great-tasting and good for you.
Since nectarines are very similar to peaches, it stands to reason that they deliver similar nutritional value.
Vitamins: Nectarines are a good source of vitamin C, A and beta carotene.
Fiber: Nectarines are a very good source of fiber which helps with digestion.
Flavonoids, or Poly Phenolic Antioxidants like:
- Lutein and Zeaxanthin which are good for the eyes.
- Lycopene which may aid in fighting macular degenerative disease and some types of cancer.
- B Cryptoxanthin which may help with aches and pains associated with arthritis.
- Panthohenic Acid or vitamin B5 which helps the body turn food into energy.
- Potassium and magnesium which may help with blood pressure.
As a bonus, the average-size nectarine has only 60 calories. Like the peach, it falls into the category of a “Negative Calorie Food” meaning that your body burns more calories to digest a nectarine than it takes in from consuming it. Now that’s pretty…ahem…sweet.
