Kuhn Orchards is harvesting their first nectarines. Enjoy this mix of white and yellow nectarines fresh out of hand or perhaps in something special like a nectarine upside down cake.

Some nectarines are harvested to ripen in a few days. If your nectarines are not quite there, just let them sit on the counter until ready.

Contents:

  • Small: approximately 5–6 nectarines depending on size
  • Medium: approximately 8–11 nectarines depending on size
  • Large: approximately 16–22 nectarines depending on size

Producer: Kuhn Orchards

Location: Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

We met Sidney and her mom at the 14th and U and Crystal City farmer's markets. We noticed their carefully arranged stand was always a beautiful oasis of ripe, local fruit. That impression has been borne out over a decade of eating their family’s fruit. Kuhn Orchards practices IPM (integrated pest management), using holistic methods that include crop rotation, planting disease-resistant varieties, using organic treatments (pears are sprayed with kaolin clay) and even trapping insects. They favor organic options first and use the aforementioned methods, and their experience, to use minimal pesticides only when and where necessary.
