Peaches and nectarines are best in late summer

Provided By:

(NC)-August - the last hoorah of the summer. For many it means an end, but Ontario's tender fruit growers are giving consumers something to celebrate - the start of peak peach and nectarine season.

Despite the fact that peaches and nectarines are juicy, delicious and versatile, both fruits are good sources of vitamin C and contain other important vitamins and minerals, including potassium and vitamin A. And, if that wasn't enough, each provides fibre, contains no fat and is sodium-free, something with which we are all increasingly concerned.

Ontario peaches and nectarines also contain phytonutrients and antioxidants - both play a key role in human health. Phytonutrients are compounds that naturally occur in plant foods such as vegetables, fruits and grain products and legumes. These compounds have beneficial effects as they work with other essential nutrients to promote good health. Currently, studies indicate that some phytonutrients have been shown to reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.

Antioxidants on the other hand, is a term that applies to substances such as vitamins C, E and beta-carotene, and they are known to help prevent damage to cells caused by free radicals and oxidation. Antioxidants found in peaches and nectarines may provide health benefits, including protection against cancer, heart disease and diseases associated with aging.
