If those are US ones then it is ice cold. I am never ever going to buy US peaches/nectarines.

Have never bought a nectarine. Are they good? Eat 'em straight or in recipes?

These are almost definately US peaches/nectarines (I don't think they're coming from anywhere else right now).

I don't know why you would have something against US peaches/nectarines. They are delicious. If you've had bad ones in the past, you have to realize that there are dozens of different farms they could have been grown at. On top of that, maybe the ones you got were past their prime.

Nectarines are basically peaches without the fuzz and usually smaller/sweeter.

US ones are not good at all. I had them from different sources and at different times of year. Tasteless. Ontario ones are closer to how peaches should taste. Can't wait for Ontario peaches - according to my calendar it should be soon.
Let us support local farmers when we can. In addition those US peaches are rich in pesticides.

Where do you get your info? You know there are legal limits (set by the CFIA) for pesticides. And you know US peaches/nectarines are tested to ensure that they are within these limits.
