Did you know? The Peach originated from the region of Northwest China, but today it can be found in many parts of the world. In fact, there are over 2000 varieties of peaches in the world. There are two two main types of peaches - Yellow Peaches are tarter - high in acid, low in sugar and White Peaches are sweeter, low in acid and high in sugar. Early varieties of peaches are known as Clingstone where the flesh clings to the stone (pit) and later varieties are Freestone. Peaches are extremely nutritious! They are high in Vitamins A and C!
