Did you know?
Peaches are a summertime staple, a fruit that’s great for desserts, salads, on top of cereals, or on their own. Peaches thrive in warm climates with lots of sunlight. They are native to northwest China, and have been domesticated and cultivated since 2000 B.C. Later, they were widely grown in the region known as Persia, which is now Iran. China is the world’s largest peach producer, followed by Spain, Italy, Greece, and the U.S. Although Georgia is known as “The Peach State,” it is not our biggest producer of peaches. Georgia is beat out by California and South Carolina. New Jersey also produces its fair share of peaches. Nectarines and peaches are similar fruits. In fact, nectarines are a type of peach. In addition to not having any fuzz, nectarines are slightly sweeter and firmer. According to the College of Food, Agriculture and Environmental Sciences, nectarines also have considerably more potassium and twice as much vitamin A as peaches.
