Nectarines
According to the Food Buying Guide, one whole size 88-96 nectarine equals a 1/2 cup serving.
 
The nectarine, has a smooth skin. It is on occasion referred to as a "shaved peach", "fuzzy-less peach" or "shaven peach" due to its lack of fuzz or short hairs.  As with peaches, nectarines can be white or yellow, and clingstone or freestone. On average, nectarines are slightly smaller and sweeter than peaches, but with much overlap.  The lack of skin fuzz can make nectarine skins appear more reddish than those of peaches, contributing to the fruit's plum-like appearance. The lack of down on nectarines' skin also means their skin is more easily bruised than peaches.  Source: Wikipedia
