Normal and flat peaches

Originally uploaded by lou_roo

Hey there everyone, I thought I’d share this picture of some heirloom peaches grown locally. They were rather delicious. I first saw them in China with Andrew in 2007 and when we asked a local to translate the name the vendor told us, the local said “flat peach”. So we enjoyed them and then promptly forgot about them till we saw some at the market here in Adelaide. They originated in China but are also grown in other parts of the world, notably, California, Washington and now Adelaide South Australia. Also known as a Donut peach or a China Flat.
