It' still harvest time but fresh and local stone fruit won't be around for much longer. Sometimes mistakenly called the seed, the stone fruit's pit or stone is what distinguishes it from other fruits. Peaches, plums, cherries, nectarines, and apricots are classic stone fruits available; while hybrids such as plots, plumcots and apriums are amazing when you have the chance to try them. We've complied to list of the 11 best stone fruit desserts to try now to help you get your fix before the short season comes to an end.
