These juicy, distinctively coloured orbs are a celebration of all things summer. Originally native to China, peaches are now a staple fruit around the world, and for good reason.

There are two varieties of peach: freestone and clingstone (referring to how easily the stone separates from the fruit), and they come with either yellow or white flesh.

A ripe peach will give gently to touch, is evenly coloured and aromatic.
