The two basic types of peaches are clingstone and
freestone. In clingstone peaches, the flesh “clings” to the “stone” of
the peach, making it difficult to separate. This type is more suitable
for processing. The pit of freestone peaches “freely” separates from the
flesh, making it ideal for fresh consumption.
• A large peach has fewer than 70 calories and contains 3 grams of fiber. It’s also a good source of vitamins A and C.
