Peaches are known for their beautiful, sweet flavor, and their health benefits are many. But don’t wait to enjoy them: The fresher and riper the peach, the more antioxidants it contains.
Peaches are thought to have originated in China more than 8,000 years ago, and cultivation later spread westward through Asia and into the Mediterranean region. The Spanish explorers brought peaches to the New World, and cultivation began circa 1600 in what is now Mexico. Peaches today are grown in warmer climates throughout both hemispheres.
Each little peach packs a world of nutrients, including magnesium, phosphorus, iron, antioxidants and vitamins. Peaches help promote healing, aid digestion, reduce allergy symptoms, improve eyesight and protect your body against aging and disease.
Use of peaches is steadily on the rise among master chefs, pastry chefs and mixologists. Craft ales, fizzy cocktails and sweet summer treats are just a few of the wonderfully peach-infused creations that abound. Peaches are also becoming commonplace in beauty and health and wellness products.
