Native to the region of Northwest China, the peach in a stone fruit known for its golden flesh and acidic, tart flavor profile. Our freeze-dried peaches pair well with blackberry, blueberry, lemon, mint, and vanilla.
Cultivation of peaches began in China as early as 2000BC. The winds of trade brought peaches to Greece and Persia, where they were instantly accepted. The juicy fruit was also a big hit with the Romans, who cultivated it throughout the empire. From Italy, peaches made the leap across the Atlantic, where early settlers planted them throughout the East Coast. Soon they were so plentiful, local botanists thought of them as native fruits.
