Hello, Penny,

An early Happy Mothers' Day to you:)  I think a lot of the fruit that is
sold commercially, these days, is bred for shipping and storage, and not
for taste. The article on peaches and nectarines in the Fruit Gardener's
current issue focuses on that and tells those of us who live in CA where
to obtain heirloom varieties and formerly widely enjoyed commercial
varieties. We were pleased to see that Panamint made the cut of
outstanding varieties of nectarines suitable for California:) They are
the best tasting nectarines, by far, that we have ever eaten...and to
have some of them canned is a bonus!
