Interesting Trivia About Peaches
Peaches are also nutrition powerhouses. They combat free radicals, reduces inflammation, eliminates the growth of candida, helps fight and prevent cancers, help preventing heart disease, and helps protect your eyes.
Make sure you use peaches when they taste the best. Their peak season is June – August. You can also use frozen peaches in winter.
White peaches are now grown worldwide. Major production sites are Italy, United States, and China.

White peaches are native to China, and have been cultivated for thousands of years according to specialtyproduce.com. They are a symbol of longevity and health.
Buy organic whenever you can, especially peaches. Since you are using the rind of the orange in this recipe, I would buy organic also.
What are the differences between yellow and white peaches?
White peaches were considered inferior to yellow peaches in the United States until the 1980’s. Now the popularity of the white peach has increased because people favored their “sweeter, less tangy flesh,” according to specialtyproduce.com.
It wasn’t until the 1980’s that a hardier white peach was made. Prior to that, white peaches bruised easily and they were difficult to transport.
