White Peach

White peaches are a sweeter and more delicate variety of peach.  Fun fact: all peaches originally came from China.

Quality Check

Gently assess the tenderness of the flesh by squeezing softly; a fully firm fruit will take at least a few more days to ripen.  Soft fruits will need to be eaten the same day.  Best stored at room temperature.

Preparation

White peaches break apart quickly when cooking, so they are best used for desserts or in sauces or dips like salsa.  Try adding slices of ripe white peach to vanilla ice cream and drizzle caramel over the top for an easy and delicious treat!
