The two basic types of peaches are the freestone and the clingstone peach. The pit of the freestone peach freely separates from the flesh of the peach, making it the best variety for fresh consumption. In the clingstone variety of peaches, they get their name because the flesh of these peaches clings to the stone, which makes it difficult to separate from the peach. The clingstone variety of peach is more suitable for processing. Peaches were once known as Persian Apples. August is National Peach month in America. The phrase you're a real peach began with the tradition of giving a peach to a friend you like. Peaches were first mentioned in literature as early at 79 A.D.
