Flat Peaches!

These are the sweetest, juiciest peaches I have ever eaten. And they've stirred up quite a craze this summer with people Tweeting pictures of them and generally talking about how lovely they are.

I received mine from Abel and Cole, and although at first they looked a bit like they'd been sat on, I was really keen to try one. Firstly, they're easier to eat because of their shape. The juice doesn't dribble down your chin so much because they're just the right height that you can bite whole chunks off comfortably, nibbling around the central stone. They are also really sweet and very juicy. I nestle them into my children's lunchbox, which they love - mainly for their cool flying-saucer shape although also because they're not as messy to eat. 

These flat peaches come from Spain, and although we're all getting excited about them now, Abel and Cole say on their website that they've been around since the 1800s. If you can get hold of them, please do try them. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

Have you tried these flat peaches? What did you think?
