  A member of the rose family, peaches, (or nectarines with added fuzz), were once known as Persian Apples.  The term "you're a real peach" originates from the tradition of giving a peach to a friend you like.  In China, the peach is a symbol of longevity and good luck.  Peaches can have yellow or white flesh, and are deliciously juicy.  Be careful handling them though - they do bruise easily.

Storage:  In a cool place, or the fridge.

Preparation and cooking:
  Rinse before use.  Eat straight out of the hand, or if using in cooking, blanch in boiling water for a minute then plunge into icy water to remove the skin easily.  Use in savoury or sweet dishes, and fruit salads of course.
