Flat Peaches!

Just to let you know, this post was written before I started the paleo diet to help ease my psoriasis. Nowadays I eat a more allergy-friendly diet, but leave these older, pre-paleo posts up in case they are useful to readers, as I know not everyone eats the same as I do. Thanks for your understanding. 

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?


  1. I love flat peaches. I am lucky enough that they appear in the market at £1 a scope of 5 or 6! I want to make chutney with them!


  2. Just had one for lunch, never bought before but always popular at market, got mine at Tesco about 8 for £1 special offer.

  3. I've loved these for a while, first time I saw them was in France few years ago but I've been buying them here for last few years.
    I've had some particularly scrumptious ones this year. Last year wasn't as good for them, not the ones I could get, year before was a good year...

  4. Hi Jo,
    I found these virtually impossible to find last year. Oddly, I found that a local Turkish food shop sells them, on Lewisham High Street. They are really juicy and tasty. They are brill for making Bellinis!

  5. They're a cross between a peach and a fig - they're all over the place in Croatia.

  6. First tried them in south of France this year & lucky to find them in local Tescos this week! Yum.
