Thread: Eating the skin of a nectarine?

Eating the skin of a nectarine?
This is a very odd time of the year to be asking such a question, but here goes:!!
Two summers ago I wasted a lot of our new 'pot grown' nectarines by trying to skin them. So last summer I just ate some unskinned (with my cereal) - and they were fine - excellent.
I'm not that keen on peach skin and I just assumed 'one skins' nectarines.
Is this the 'normal' thing to do?
(<My wife is incapacitated and I don't want to give her anything that's for any reason, best avoided).
Thanks in advance for any help,

I don't know about eating them raw, I thought they might taste bitter, but I know they are boiled whole as a sweet dish and you eat them with the skins on.I you'st to have a handle on the world .. but it BROKE!!

nope have always eaten nectarine skin, and i'm not dead yet and nectarines aren't velvety like peaches.

Never thought to peel nectarines or peaches. washing peaches usually takes off most of the 'fluff' anyway. I can't see there can be any problems.

Ditto always eaten nectarine skins, just a quick wash before eating.

Same here, always eat the skin.

I've just washed and eaten them.
I suppose you could peel if worried about pesticides being absorbed into the skin...but I've always washed and eaten apples with their skins on too.

Ive never eaten nectarine skin because i tried peach skin.... they look the same even though there shiny!, with the peaches i cant stand the skin , i only eat them by slicing them up and peeling the skin off.

One eats kumquats skins and all so why not nectarines.

It never even occurred to me to peel a nectarine! If life's too short to stuff a mushroom, think of all the time I'm saving eating me necky skins!Whoever plants a garden believes in the future.
