Peaches

In Season: Typically available June through September Once known as Persian apples, peaches were actually first cultivated in China, where they were revered as a symbol of longevity. Peaches are a member of the rose family, which explains the sweet fragrance characteristic of this fruit when it is ripe. The third most popular fruit in the United States, peaches come in several varieties, differing in qualities like color of flesh, adherence of the pit to the flesh, and ability of the fruit to withstand canning.
