Peaches are notorious for their fuzzy thin skin with hues of red, pink and gold blushing throughout. The flesh is aromatic, juicy when ripe, and golden colored with red bleeds at the skin and surrounding the central rough surfaced rust colored pit.
Luscious stone fruits arrive from Chile beginning in November as this country's summer growing season is November through April.
Global commerce has made it possible to enjoy "summer" fruits all winter long.
Juicy Chilean peaches offer vitamin A and vitamin C, antioxidants present in stone fruit, and dietary fiber. Cholesterol-free, plus low in fat and sodium, one average peach contains about 37 calories. Research shows that eating more fruits and vegetables can reduce the risk of stroke, high blood pressure, heart disease and cancer.
Tasty Chilean peaches deliciously top pancakes, waffles and cereal, either hot or cold. Blend bite size pieces into low-fat yogurt or make a refreshing peach smoothie. Rice salads, seafood and poultry especially love the company of this fruit. To store, ripen fruit at room temperature. Refrigerate ripe fruit for longer storage.
The United States easily provides the largest market for delicious Chilean fruit exports. Taking much pride in their fruit production, Chile growers put extraordinary effort in growing exceptional quality fruit.
