Information

The peach tree, Prunus Persica, is native to China, and evidence of its domestication has been found as far back as 6000 BC! The tree bears sweet, stone fruits, with a soft yellow or whitish flesh. Nectarines, though commonly thought to be a different fruit, are a type of peach with a recessive allele responsible for the smooth skin. Peach blossoms are treasured in Chinese culture, and the fruit is mentioned extensively in ancient Chinese literature. The peach has a wealth of nutritional benefits, and is a rich source of Vitamin A, fibre and Vitamin C.

World production of peaches in 2018 was around 24.5 million tonnes, by far the majority of which (around 62%) was produced in China, though mainly for the domestic market.

Our product portfolio extends to a wide range of peach products, from dried snack fruit to smoothie blends.
