Last year I bought a peach tree from what I thought to be a reputable garden centre in near neighbouring Andalucia. The variety of peach was supposed to be The Paraguayo variety. I duly planted and waited, but a year down the line what came to maturity was an Amarelo ( yellow fleshed) peach. How disappointing. The paraguyo does not usually grow in the Algarve so Portuguese garden centres do not normally carry stock of them. I was so excited to be a potential Portuguese grower of the paraguayo, but alas, at the end of the day can you trust a label?
The yellow flesh peaches tend to have a more Acidic tang than the white flesh peaches.
For a fresh salad idea, combine sliced peaches with shredded barbequed chicken, baby Asian salad greens, sliced avocado and camembert cheese. Drizzle with a mixture of olive oil and lime juice.
For a fresh breakfast, peel peaches and remove stones. Puree the flesh until smooth then swirl through natural yoghurt. Serve over fruit salad or cereal.
