    By: Pittman & Davis | On: | Category: Fruit Information

    Once upon a time, a member of our team who had recently moved into a new house found a tree his backyard was producing a strange fruit he wasn’t familiar with. It was round and firm like an apple (and about the same size as a large apple, too), with a speckled golden, slightly fuzzy skin and a mouthwatering fragrance. Unwilling to bite into an unknown fruit, he brought a sample in to the office, set it down on the breakroom table, and asked, “Can anyone tell me what the heck this is?!” As it turned out, our supervisor could.…

    By: Pittman & Davis | On: | Category: Fruit Information

    Have you received a gift of fruit from Pittman & Davis, and you’re wondering what these strange fruits that look like peaches (but without the fuzz) are? They’re nectarines, of course! Botanically speaking, these two quality fruits are almost exactly the same: they’re both red-and-yellow stone fruits of the Rosacae family, and they’re in season in the US during the summer months. On the surface, the only real difference between nectarines and peaches is that nectarines are smooth-skinned, and peaches have a slight fuzz or down on their skins. They’re similar in calories and nutrition offerings, and even similar-tasting –…

    By: Pittman & Davis | On: | Category: Fruit Information

    Did you know that more than half the American population is walking around in a state of partial dehydration? One study of 2,000 people found that just 22% drink the USDA-recommended eight to 10 eight-ounce glasses of water each day.
