Now you know how to say vegetables and fruits starting with the letter o (see How to say olive, onion, nectarine and orange in Chinese?) , which vegetables and fruits start with the letter p? Here they come, pea, potato, peach and pear.
What is the difference between peaches and nectarines (see How to say olive, onion, nectarine and orange in Chinese?)? As a general rule, they are very similar. Both have the same heady scent and rich flavor, and they can be used interchangeably in a wide assortment of foods.
Genetically, identification of peach and nectarine varieties relies on the prominence of a certain dominant gene or a certain recessive one. When the dominant gene is prominent the fruit is called a peach; when the recessive gene is prominent it is called a nectarine.
Physically, peaches are larger than nectarines; have a larger, rounder stone (pit); and have a fuzzy outer skin. Nectarines are smaller, with a smaller and flatter stone, and have a smooth outer skin. Nectarines are also sweeter in taste than peaches. While nectarines grow on their own trees, because they are so closely related to peaches, occasionally you will find a nectarine growing on a peach tree.
