Yellow peaches are the most beloved and popular of the stone fruits. They range in color from pink-blushed over a white background, to gold with a red blush, and have a signature fuzzy flesh. The flavor of a peach can range from very sweet to mildly acidic depending on variety and picking times. Peaches do not increase in sweetness once picked, so it is important to choose peaches that have a strong fragrance indicating the flavor inside.
White peaches are identifiable by their color, a pink blush over a white background, and sweeter taste than the traditional yellow varieties. The sugar content makes these peaches a perfect candidate to grill for a quick summer dessert.
