National Peach Month August 28, 2006

Posted by Andy in andy roth, peach, soapbox.

Had it not been for Stephen Colbert (who was robbed by Barry Manilow btw), I might have forgotten that August in National Peach Month.  Before September is upon us, lets take a moment to honor this pretty fruit. Peaches are tasty, juicy, and delicious yet unlike their red-headed step child the Apriocot (aka Dwarf Peach), peaches are still rugged and manly.

Maybe they are too rugged.  What I don’t like about peaches is the fur.  Eating the peach fur is like eating a round red mouse.  Peaches are only appealing when peeled.  Could not some goverment-subsidised, argicultural wizard breed or invent a furless peach, or better yet, a peach that you could peel like a banana?  How about it science?

Despite this, peaches are still quite worthy of a month long celebration. Wheter on cereal, in ice cream, or au natural, the peach is a worthy and worthwhile fruit.

Furless peach? Ummmm, a nectarine, perhaps?
