I found these in the Market on Thursday. They were gone by Friday. And I've been happily eating them since. They're smaller than the average nectarine, and seem more like a plum. Their flesh is like a plum, some of them are small enough to pop whole in your mouth (you can eat around the pit, like a cherry), and they're hairless, mellow, sweet and gem coloured. The Ontario fruit basket handles said "Epps Nectarines", which could be the variety, or the farm. I don't know, but I recommend picking some up if you come across them.
