Peach Tree History
The scientific name persica, along with the word "peach" itself and its cognates in many European languages, derives from an early European belief that peaches were native to Persia (now Iran). The modern botanical consensus is that they originate in China, and were introduced to Persia and the Mediterranean region along the Silk Road before Christian times.
Both types of Peaches white and yellow flesh varieties often have some red on their skin. Low-acid white-fleshed peaches are the most popular kinds in China, Japan, and
neighboring Asian countries, while Europeans and North Americans have historically
favored the acidic, yellow-fleshed kinds.
Cultivated peaches are divided into "freestone" and "clingstone" cultivars, depending on whether the flesh sticks to the stone or not; both kinds can have either white or yellow flesh. Peaches with white flesh typically are very sweet with little acidity, while yellow-fleshed peaches typically have an acidic tang coupled with sweetness, though this also varies greatly.
