Peaches and nectarines have to share a spot because, frankly, they are just so similar. Either peaches are nectarines with fuzz or nectarines or peaches without fuzz, whichever way you see it, they are interchangeable when it comes to eating and cooking and using summer fruits.

See How to Peel Peaches, How to Slice Peaches, How to Pit Peaches, and even How to Grill Peaches before embarking on making your own Peach Pie, Peach Crostada, or Peach Jam.
