is a juicy fruit
from the tree Prunus persica
, which has a stone, yellow or whitish flesh, and a velvety skin. Cultivated peaches are divided into freestone
varieties, depending on whether the flesh sticks to the pit. The nectarine
is a closely related fruit.
The name peach refers to a range of pale pinkish-orange colours.
Though Cosmo Kramer, a character on the sitcom Seinfeld, eats a so-called Mackinaw peach, no such variety exists.
