Stone Fruits: Peaches, Nectarines, Plums, Apricots, and Cherries. Peaches, nectarines, plums, apricots, and cherries are all members of the Prunus genus and are therefore closely related. They commonly are referred to as "stone fruits" because the seed is very large and hard. Summer time is the ideal fresh stone fruit season, so let's celebrate these little beauties in some delicious salads!
