Benefits of Nectarine

Nectarines should best be consumed as quickly as possible for it tends to perish under high temperatures. Unripe nectarine may be kept in a paper bag at room temperature to speed up the ripening process. For later usage, ripe and ready nectarines may be stored in a refrigerator for a few days and in cold storage for not more than two weeks.
