Peach

The peach is a juicy fruit from the tree Prunus persica, which has a stone, yellow or whitish flesh, and a velvety skin. Cultivated peaches are divided into freestone and clingstone varieties, depending on whether the flesh sticks to the pit. The nectarine is a closely related fruit. It is so closely related, in fact, that crops of peaches will occasionally contain a few nectarines, and vice versa.

The name peach refers to a range of pale pinkish-orange colours.


Though Cosmo Kramer, a character on the sitcom Seinfeld, eats a so-called Mackinaw peach, no such variety exists.
