Do you dare to eat a peach?

Middle and late summer are the seasons to enjoy this fruit, and the feeling of biting into this juicy morsel on a hot day can't be found at any other time in China.

The pink delicacy's nutritional value has been known for a long time in China, as it is connected with longevity.

In traditional Chinese mythology, the peach can help people stay young, and it often finds its way to the hand of the god of longevity.

In the 1980s and 1990s, when canned fruit was popular in China, the ones with nectarines, or "yellow peaches" were the most beloved.
