Peaches have been grown in Europe since the time of Alexander the Great, with the light soil and strong Mediterranean sun creating the perfect ground for peach cultivation. Today, the European Union is the second largest peach and nectarine producer worldwide.
European peaches and nectarines produced in Greece stand out for their aroma, colour, endurance and sweet taste. They are an excellent source of vitamins A and C and rich in beta-carotene and fiber as well.
Peaches are being controlled throughout all growing stages and, in some cases, are collected ripe and are packed by hand in the field to avoid any intermediate stress, so that the peaches that reach your table, are exactly as when picked from the tree.
Fresh peaches are a delicious treat that can be enjoyed alone or as part of a fresh fruit-salad. They can very well accompany yoghurt, ice-cream, or serve as the basic ingredient of marmalades and sorbets!
