Sentences with nectarine

1. Noun, singular or mass
Unfortunately that's not a strategy you can use at the supermarket, so it's helpful to understand and recognize a few of the sensory cues that indicate a well-ripened nectarine.

2. Adjective
A fully ripened nectarine only remains at its peak for a day or two, so they're best when eaten almost immediately.
