Also known as a Flat or Saturn Nectarine, this type of fruit has a flattened appearance that is similar in shape to a donut, thus the name. Donut Nectarines which look somewhat like donut peaches have a higher acid to sugar ratio than a peach but are very sweet flavored. In addition, the Nectarine will typically have a greater amount of red skin coloring with a firm and more dense texture on the inner flesh. The Donut Nectarine is a good snacking fruit or a flavorful addition to salads, desserts, crepes, and many other foods using fruit.
