Peaches are cultivated varieties derived from the species Prunus persica. The ancestral home for the species is the Tarim Basin in China. Humans have dispersed the species widely over several thousand years.

Peaches have pubescence (fuzz). A wide variety of colours, textures and flavour type exists.

Skin colour ranges from pale white through to yellow and totally red in colour.

Flesh colour ranges from white through to yellow gold coloured to bright orange.

Textures range from soft when ripe (dessert) through to rubbery when ripe (canning) to crunchy.

Taste ranges from sweet to aromatic and sub acid to strongly acidic.

Peaches are self fertile.
