The fruit has yellow or whitish flesh, a delicate aroma, and a skin that is either velvety (peaches) or smooth (nectarines) in different cultivars. The flesh is very delicate and easily bruised in some cultivars, but is fairly firm in some commercial varieties, especially when green. The single, large seed is red-brown, oval shaped, approximately 1.4–2 cm long, and is surrounded by a wood-like husk. .Peaches, along with cherries, plums and apricots, are stone fruits (drupes).^ They are plum, apple, cherry, apricot etc.

Peaches with white flesh typically are very sweet with little acidity, while yellow-fleshed peaches typically have an acidic tang coupled with sweetness, though this also varies greatly. Both colours often have some red on their skin. Low-acid white-fleshed peaches are the most popular kinds in China, Japan, and neighbouring Asian countries, while Europeans and North Americans have historically favoured the acidic, yellow-fleshed kinds.

History

.Although its botanical name Prunus persica suggests the peach is native to Persia, peaches actually originated in China where they have been cultivated since the early days of Chinese culture.^ Peach has come a long way since her early days as a perpetual hostage – she plays with the big boys these days, and she holds her own just fine!"

[4] Certain cultivars are more tender and others can tolerate a few degrees colder. In addition, a lot of summer heat is required to mature the crop, with mean temperatures of the hottest month between 20 °C and 30 °C. Another problematic issue in many peach-growing areas is spring frost. .The trees tend to flower fairly early in spring.^ This disease is relatively easy to control with good sanitation and by spraying with lime sulfur when the trees are dormant in the early spring or late fall.

However, if the flowers are not fully open, they can tolerate a couple of degrees colder. In Vietnam, the most famous variety of peach fruit product is grown in Mẫu Sơn commune, Lộc Bình district, Lạng Sơn province.
Important historical peach-producing areas are China, Iran, France, and the Mediterranean countries like Italy, Spain and Greece. .More recently, the United States (where the three largest producing states are California, South Carolina,[5] and Georgia[6]), Canada (British Columbia), and Australia (the Riverland region) have also become important; peach growing in the Niagara Peninsula of Ontario, Canada, was formerly intensive but ended in 2008 when the last fruit cannery in Canada was closed by the proprietors.^ They bloomed the last two years, but haven’t produced any fruit.

Peach allergy or intolerance is a relatively common form of hypersensitivity to proteins contained in peaches and related fruit (almonds). Symptoms range from local symptoms (e.g. oral allergy syndrome, contact urticaria) to systemic symptoms including anaphylaxis (e.g. urticaria, angioedema, gastrointestinal and respiratory symptoms).[14] Adverse reactions are related to the "freshness" of the fruit: peeled or canned fruit may be tolerated.

The Peach is a species of the Prunus persica, and is a fruit tree of the rose family Rosaceae. They grow in the warm regions of both the Northern and Southern hemispheres.

The Peach blossoms are from small to medium-sized. The tree is sometimes up to 6.5 m (21 feet) in height. When it is grown by people, though, the height it is usually kept between 3 and 4 m (10 and 13 feet) by pruning. Leaves are glossy green, lance-shaped, and long pointed; they usually have glands at their bases that secrete a fluid to attract ants and other insects.

Peach is a fruit that grows from a tree that first came from China. It can also mean the tree, not only the fruit. Peaches are called stone fruits because they have a shell of hard wood around their seed, called a stone or a pit. There are two kinds of peaches. The first one is the freestone and the other one is the clingstone. Freestone peaches do not stick to their pits, while clingstone peaches do.

The skin of a peach is an orange or yellow color, and it is covered in small hairs called a peach fuzz. A peach without the fuzz is usually called a nectarine. The inside of a peach is a golden color. The inside of a peach is sweet and sticky. Because they taste sweet, peaches are often part of dessert.

Peaches are grown all over the world these days but they are now becoming very expensive. In Peru, peaches are called panigwats, which mean sweet fruit. Scientists say that peaches are so rare that the species of the peach might get wiped out.

Lifespan of a peach

Peaches are Jennifer Hinz's favorite fruit.

Because of the cold winter, diseases, and pests, peach trees can usually only live about 10 to 12 years. However, if a peach tree is fertilized properly, and taken care of in the right way, it may live more years.[1]

Pests

Brown rot

Brown rot is a very dangerous kind of peach disease. It can attack the blossoms and stop the fruit from developing. If it is not stopped quickly, good quality fruit can not be produced from the peach tree.[1]

Peach leaf curl

Peach leaf curl, which is another very serious disease, makes the leaves curl up and begin to die in Spring. It can be stopped if it meets fungicide.[1]

Bacterial spot

Bacterial spot gives harm to the leaves, twigs and fruit. By the time the disease is recognized, it is often too late to stop it.[1] However, some kind of sprays may be used early in the next season to protect the peach tree.

Cankers

Cankers is a kind of disease that infects the twigs and branches. They make large amounts of amber-colored gum spill out from the infected branch. Later, the bark will crack open completely and the tissue of the twig turns black. Cankers can be removed by pruning.

Insects

There are several kinds of insect pests that can be great trouble to the peach. The Oriental Fruit Moth can make the peaches filled with worms and young growing tips may die.[1] The Plum Curculio lays its eggs on the fruit, and makes them drop off or become filled with worms.[1] Catfacing insects like the Tarnished Plant Bug and the Stink Bug eat up the fruit that is still developing.[1] Borers attack the base of the trunk and the branches.[1]
