Peach Health Benefits And Nutrition Values

A great many varieties of fruit peaches are grown, but only an expert can distinguish one from another. These varieties, available May to November, fall into two general types: freestone and clingstone. Freestones are usually preferred for eating fresh or for freezing, while clingstones are used primarily for canning, although they are sometimes sold fresh. Look for: Peaches which are fairly firm or becoming a trifle soft. The skin color between the red areas should be yellow or at least creamy. Avoid: Very firm or hard peaches with a distinctly green ground color, which are probably immature and won't ripen properly. Also avoid very soft fruits which are overripe. Don't buy peaches with large flattened bruises or peaches with any sign of decay. Decay starts as a pale tan spot which expands in a circle and gradually turns darker in color.
