What's in season? Peaches!

With my kitchen counter looking like this:
It must be peach season!

Learn all about peaches:
  • Georgia is known as the Peach State, but most peaches in the US are grown in California
  • Peaches grow on a tree and have a fuzzy outer skin
  • Peaches are a good source of fiber and Vitamin C
  • Learn more at the United States Department of Agriculture
 Read James and the Giant Peach and then have a peach party.

How to eat peaches:
  • Just wash the peach and take a bite!
  • Cut the peach into slices or bite size portions 
  • If the fuzzy skin is too much texture, you can peel the peach before eating

Let’s expand to other foods and textures:

Not ready to eat peaches? Here are some other ways to explore peaches:
  • Tear up pieces of orange tissue paper and decorate a paper plate to look like a peach
  • Make a peach pit pendant
  • Touch the outside of a peach. Compare how the skin feels to other fruits.
