Been having some posting problems here which doesn't explain this picture.
While at the Santa Monica farmers market, I chanced upon some nectarines of a variety called the Lovely Lolita. These were amazing, very low acid, fragrant, yielding in texture, and freestones to boot. After devouring one, I shared the other (albeit begrudgingly) and resolved to return and buy more. Peaches and nectarines were everywhere in the market but apparently only one vendor carried it. Sadly, only return, I found only an empty basket where Lolita once populated.
The woman behind me also sighed her disappointment. I am glad to have tasted Lolitas, and hope to do so again.
