They were first introduced to Europe in the 1st century AD and to North America in the 16th century.
The word “peach” traces its roots back to the Latin “malum persicum,” meaning “Persian apple,” because these luscious beauties were thought to have hailed from Persia (modern-day Iran).
Peaches are a good source of vitamins A and C, as well as potassium.
