Earlier today I discovered that it was ‘National Eat a Peach Day.’
The peach in the picture above is from a friend’s peach tree. See my post Delicious Peaches to see pictures that document a peach tree from blossom to fruit that is ready to pick.
Last weekend I bought a couple of peaches at the grocery store but had not yet eaten them. I was waiting for the right moment when the peaches would be at their best. Tonight happened to be the right moment to eat one 🙂
Did you know that peaches originally come from China? While I was in Shanghai last month I saw an article in the paper that said that they originated very near to Shanghai. It was only two years ago that this discovery was announced. Previously peaches were thought to have first been cultivated in Northwest China.
I am thankful that the Chinese cultivated the peach. I love the flavor of peaches.
Did you eat a peach today?
