Fuzzy, juicy, and sweet, peaches (Prunus persica) are a favorite fruit worldwide, and have been for centuries. They grow on medium sized (33 ft.) trees of the same name, which are native to northwestern China. Peach trees are unique in that their gorgeous pink flowers appear early spring before the leaves emerge, which is why these fruits often symbolize longevity.
These velvety fruits have been cultivated in China since 2000 B.C., and were a favorite fruit for kings and emperors as early as the 10th century B.C. The fruit and trees have even impacted cultural Chinese folk lore and spirituality; it was believed that rods made from peach wood could ward off evil, and the ancient deity known as the Old Man of the South Pole was often depicted with peaches as a symbol of long life and health.
