The flavor of the moment: Peach

The origin of peaches:

Peaches, also known as prunus persica, originate from northwest China. They have been cultivated for thousands of years. In ancient times, peaches were considered a symbol of immortality and longevity.

Over the years, peach cultivation developed in several regions, including Iran and India. Later, it also spread to Europe.

Today, peach farms can be found in China, the USA, Spain, Italy, Greece and Turkey. There are many varieties of peach, with different sizes, colors and flavors.

To ensure healthy growth and abundant peach production, it's vital to follow a few simple steps.

Peaches need a sunny location with well-drained soil. Temperate climates are ideal for peach trees. Trees are planted in spring, before they begin to grow actively. During their first year, peach trees need regular watering. The harvest season in the northern hemisphere is from May to September.
