One of nature's delights is getting your hands on fresh stone fruit during summer. Stone fruits are classified as fruits that envelope a stone or seed. Aside from their juicy, sweet flavour, stone fruits can provide a range of health benefits, such as:
- Immunity boost — Stone fruits are rich in vitamin C. This antioxidant helps build a strong immune system, which can help you fight illnesses.
- Promotes healthy digestion — Stone fruits also contain heaps of fibre, which helps you digest food more efficiently and keeps you feeling fuller for longer.
- Helps with nerves and muscles — Like bananas, stone fruits are full of potassium, which helps keep your nerves and muscles in good condition.
How to enjoy fresh stone fruit
One of the benefits of buying stone fruit is that it can be used in various ways. Frozen or fresh stone fruit can be blended in smoothies, enjoyed as a snack, or used in baking and fruit salads.
While nectarines and peaches appear similar, they differ in texture. Peaches have a fuzzy feel to them, while nectarine skins are smooth. Both taste sweet and are best enjoyed chilled — highly refreshing on a warm day! Cherries can have either a sweet or sour taste and are the perfect beach snack.
