A Peach is a very sweet, juicy fruit with an edible peel and a hard pit in the middle. Peaches vary in color from almost white to yellow and pinkish-red. Peaches grow on trees in temperate climates — they need warm weather, but they also require a hard freeze in the winter to produce fruit. There are hundreds of varieties that vary greatly in color and flavor, and the taste ranges from very sweet with a little acidity to types that are mostly acidic with mild sweetness. Whether starring in a cocktail, a spicy sauce, or indulgent dessert, the peach flavor has a versatility that is nearly unmatched.
