They're Out!

Perhaps this peach does not look like heaven from the outside.  I'll admit, it took me awhile to warm up to the squashy, lumpy shape of the "UFO" or "donut" peach.  We had our first one a couple of years ago, and now we wait excitedly for the first crop to appear on farm stand shelves.  This week, they arrived! 
Regular peaches, while delicious, just do not compare to this amazing variety.  To me they taste like a perfect blend of peach and plum.  So sweet, so juicy.  No mush.  Have you had them?  Have you ever even seen them?  Do you have another odd looking fruit to recommend?  Please share!

This reminds me of the Seinfeld episode; Kramer was ecstatic over the ensuing peach season!

I have never ever seen one of these doughnut peaches Jennie!
I think they look cute!

We're great peach lovers in this family -when you get the perfect ones!

I'm gonna have a look for these in the shops -but even if I do find them you can bet your bottom dollar that they don't taste as good once they get over here :o)

Happy 4th July our Jennie and co :D
