Although the plum season is fairly long, just like nectarines and peaches the individual harvest time for each variety is very short, usually around 1-3 weeks. As a result plum varieties tend to follow each other and be available in rapid succession.
As the temperatures increase and evenings get lighter, there's one distinctive way to know summer has arrived - the smell of a barbecue. As this intoxicating scent floats around Europe, consumers head to the supermarkets for grilling inspiration.
The European fruit season is finally here. Many sweet and juicy fruits are starting to arrive from Spain and Italy, among them - the nectarines. There are a great variety of nectarines available but each one has a very short season, this means supplying nectarines for an entire season involves using exporters of different varieties and growing areas.
