Peaches and Pears

Along with some table grapes, organic fruit CSA subscribers got beautiful boxes of peaches and pears. I can barely keep up with all the regular produce, so skipped it this time. Not without some envy.

You could just call this photo "Willits Overflow."

The colors alone are edible.

I hope that one of these days, I'll be able to try fresh peaches! I've only ever seen canned or bottled ones here.

Petrea said...

Hilda! We must conspire to get you some fresh peaches! There's no comparison.

P, you're funny!

Yes, I agree that you must have a fresh peach to try somehow. I imagine the nearest suitable climate for growing them would be Japan, but they may not do much exporting of them. They require more careful handling than many fruits - as you can see, they are each nested evenly in the boxes in the photo. They bruise easily.
