Nectarine Supersweet

August 17th, 2009 | Fruit Maven

If you wear delightful perfume that captures the attention of everyone you meet, but actually are a grumpy old woman with yellow teeth, then this is the fruit for you!
APPEARANCE Rating: ★★★★☆

Very pretty rich red, orange, and yellow coloring, smooth skin, medium yellow flesh

AROMA Rating: ★★★★★

Perfection – just smells completely delightful, perfumy, sweet, makes me want to shove it up my nose permanently

TEXTURE Rating: ★★½☆☆

Slightly mealy but not awful, not my favorite texture though

TASTE Rating: ★½☆☆☆

Completely ho hum, general nectarine flavor but not sweet really – a disappointment after how amazing the fragrance was

OVERALL Overall Rating: ★★★½☆

I want to smell this nectarine all day every day.  I don’t want to eat it, I am not disappointed about throwing it out and I don’t recommend it to anyone.  I may try this one again though because the fragrance was so damn awesome.  (Note: tried this again two weeks later and my conclusions are exactly the same – sad).

NOTES

This particular nectarine is a white and yellow nectarine combined.  The note at the grocery store indicated that they are “super sweet” when ripe.  I’m not sure how one would attain that.  Mine was at the perfect pressure for ripeness and looked beautiful.
