Nectarines

Nectarines are one of our prized specialties, featuring both conventional and organic crops. Nectarines are interestingly a smooth-skinned relative to the peach, sharing the same genetic family.  DLJ’s goal is to constantly supply the best nectarines from around the world, always sourcing the best flavor year-round. Our harvest begins in Central California and carries through our premier growing regions in Chile.

Both yellow (higher acid – fuller flavor) and white (lower acid – sweeter flavor) varieties are featured from all our seasonal growing regions. DLJ always puts a focus on maturity and having the best tasting nectarines when in season.
