Did You Know?

  • Peaches are classified as either clingstone or freestone. The flesh of clingstone peaches sticks to the pit, or seed, of the peach, making it difficult to separate.  The pit of freestone peaches easily separates from the flesh. Clingstone and freestone peaches are found in both white and yellow varieties.
  • One large peach has fewer than 70 calories, contains 3 grams of fiber, and is a great source of vitamins A and C.
  • To quickly peel a lot of peaches, cook them whole in a large pot of boiling water for 30 seconds. Transfer peaches to ice water, and let them cool enough to handle. The peels will slip right off with a gentle tug.
