Mango Nectarines

I discovered a new type of fruit at the supermarket today: mango nectarines. They look like largish apricots, but the skin is a pale yellow rather than orange, with a bit of green on what I assume are some of the underripe ones. They smell divine - an almost floral scent, very like a mango.

This blog post was the most informative source that a quick Google search turned up. They're not related to mangoes - they must be some kind of complicated stone fruit cross (apricot/nectarine? apricot/nectarine/plum?)

The ones I got aren't quite ripe yet, so I don't know how they taste. I'll report back.
