Also known as a Saturn Peach, Paraguayo Peach, Pan Tao Peach, and Saucer Peach, this international peach originates from China and first appeared in American markets in 1986. The fruit contains a fleshy juicy and melting substance that has an extraordinary flavor when it reaches maturity. Donut peaches represent a great snack, having the shape of a round, flattened donut.
Nearly ripe peaches will keep at room temperature for 3 or 4 days. After peaches ripen they will keep one or two days longer in the refrigerator. Don’t refrigerate peaches until they are fully ripe; they will lose juice and flavor if refrigerated too long. Allow peaches to come to room temperature before serving.
