National Peach Month August 28, 2006Posted 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.
