Carbon county students get so excited about fresh nectarines when we have the opportunity to serve them as our fresh fruit option. We like to think that this is due to the fact that they are seasonal, extra tasty and a flavor we don’t often have a chance to offer.
Nectarines are an excellent source of Vitamin A, which carrots are usually famous for, but nectarines also pack a generous amount of Vitamin C. We need Vitamin C to stay healthy.
Nectarines are not only good tasting but also good for you!
