Peaches and Nectarines from the south are hailed as the best among all other such fruit produced elsewhere. It could be because of the soil, the climate, or the farming history surrounding this area, but these two sweet and luscious fruits are simply awesome eaten raw out of hand or added as an ingredient to make desserts.
