Nectarine Trivia

The nectarine got its start in China as a genetic variant of the common peach, and is not, as some believe, the consequence of a cross between a peach and a plum. One Chinese emperor was so enthralled with nectarines that he and his people referred to them as the "nectar of the gods." The nectarine was brought to America via Europe, and made its way to California over 130 years ago.
