Introducing the 'Doughnut Peach'

Also know as the Chinese Flat Peach.  When we first saw these peaches we thought they were unfortunate misshaped peaches.  But no, these are an ancient variety of peach first grown in China in the 19th Century.  They have a sweeter taste than ordinary peaches, the flesh does not cling to stone as tightly as normal peaches, and with their flatter shape, means you do not get in such a mess when eating them!
