Preheat the oven to 375 . You will need a 9 x 13 inch baking dish or Pyrex pan.
For the fruit:
Stir the agave syrup and cornstarch together. Toss with the prepared nectarines and spread in the baking dish.
Whisk together the flour, corn meal, baking powder and salt.Cut in the butter with two forks or your hands, until it resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center and add the agave syrup and buttermilk. Stir gently with a wooden spoon just until it pulls together. Bits of butter should be visible in the dough.
Sprinkle the cutting board with flour. Gently knead the biscuits about 9 or 10 times.Do not overwork. Cut the biscuits into about 12 to 15 squares or rounds.
Drop the biscuit dough over the fruit in the prepared pan. Bake for about 25 to 35 minutes, or until the filling is bubbly and the biscuits are browned.
