Stonefruit

Stonefruit

In botany, a drupe is an indehiscent fruit in which an outer fleshy part surrounds a shell (the pit or stone) of hardened endocarp with a seed (kernel) inside.

Most important are peaches, nectarines, apricots and plums, which are split into red, yellow and dark plums. Many old plums varieties were in the past replaced by new varieties, which have better eating quality, longer shelf life and focus on the late season.

Apricots

The apricot was known in Armenia during ancient times and has been cultivated there over long. It is often thought to have originated there. According to other sources the origin would be the Chinese region, where the domestication would have taken place. Again other sources report that it was first cultivated in India in about 3000 BC.

Nectarines

Nectarines have a smooth skin. It is sometimes referred to as a "shaven peach" due to its lack of short hairs. Important historical peach-producing areas are China, Iran and the Mediterranean countries such as France, Italy, Spain and Greece. More recently it became very popular in the USA due to new breedings and varieties. Since 2018 we also ripen stonefruit.
