August is National Peach Month
August is National Peach Month. All hail the peach!
It’s National Peach Month and celebrating is an absolute pleasure. Just choose your favorite recipe and savor nature’s sweet and juicy miracle fruit. Peach pie. Peach cobbler. Peaches right off the tree. It all goes great with a shot of Forever Aloe Peaches®!
Nothing says summer like a peach in the hand. The colors of its fuzzy flesh are reminiscent of the sun itself, with vibrant shades of red, yellow and orange. It’s also the perfect time to eat peaches, which are harvested throughout the summer.
August, however, is when peaches reach the pinnacle of perfection. Not too hard. Not too mushy. The sweetness has hit its stride along with the nutritional content. A fresh peach is loaded with vitamins and antioxidants that help fuel your body and provide nutrition without a lot of calories. In fact, the average medium-sized peach is only 37 calories!
This delicious fruit is revered all over the world with more than 700 known varieties in existence. The peach originated in China and is a very important cultural symbol. The Chinese people consider peach to be a tree of life and a symbol of unity and long life. Peach blossoms are often carried by Chinese brides on their wedding day.
In the United States, Georgia is famous for its peaches, but California is the largest producer and grows more than half of all the peaches harvested in America.
