August is National Peach Month, and it's a time to pick, eat, cook, or try your favorite fruit smoothie recipes with one of nature’s most delicious fruits. The following are just some of the things you might not know about this tasty fruit. Peaches are part of the rose family. Peaches are part of the rose family, along with plums, apricots, and almonds. Peaches can be round, or they can be shaped like donuts, with a pit instead of a hole. Peaches can also have either yellow or white flesh and skin and can be clingstone or freestone peaches. Clingstone peaches cling to the stone, which makes them messy to separate, while freestone peaches separate freely from the pit, making freestone peaches easier to eat out of your hand.

Peaches are all fuzzy. The fuzz on peaches is controlled by a single gene. This means that nectarines are a virtually identical species of fruit, not a hybrid of peaches and plums as is often thought. If you are not fond of the fuzz on the peaches skin, you can remove the skin by quickly and neatly dropping a few peaches at a time into a pot of some boiling water for around 30 seconds and then transferring the peaches to some cold water immediately. The skins of the peaches will slip right off in your hand. Peaches can help reduce anxiety. In Hungary, peaches are called the fruit of calmness. Eating peaches is believed by some to help reduce anxiety. The seeds of peaches are useful. Peach seeds taste a bit like bitter almonds, and adding a couple of peach pits to peach preserves, good pie recipes, syrups, liquors, or baked goods can bring out a wonderful depth of flavor. Many believe the peach pit to be poisonous. The pits do contain some hydrocyanic acid which can be poisonous in large amounts, but an adult can safely eat several seeds a day with no ill effects, and more if they pits have been cooked since cooking partially breaks down the compound. Peaches are from California. Despite Georgia’s nickname, more than half of the peaches grown come from California. Peaches are called a stone fruit, because of the hard pits that surround their seeds.

And though you can just toss the pits into the compost, the pits do have alternate uses. Pulverize peach pits into tiny beads, they are perfect for use in DIY ideas for facial cleansers and are much safer for the environment than that of plastic microbeads, which are polluting the water, and you can add ground peach pits into all sorts of DIY ideas for facial cleansers.
