Today we culminated a week of sales training with a walk through the fields and budwood orchards.
As we passed the ripe Donut (Saturn) Peaches and were refreshing ourselves with their sweet, sugery goodness, I recalled a conversation I had with a customer earlier this year in Texas. As I was describing the improvement of size and flavor of the Galaxy Peach over the Donut Peach, he commented, "can you pop the seed out of the Saturn Peach like I do with the Donut Peach?"
"Yeah, I use my thumb and pop the seed right out of the peach and it looks like a donut - hole and all. Now you can eat the whole thing."
Since I had never tried this or heard of such a thing, I plead ignorance.
Today, we got to try it. Or at least Kevin did while we watched. (As the newest member of our sales staff, he gets volunteered for a lot of things.)
Guess what, it works!
Seed is gone. Now what?
Seems a new way to eat Donut Peaches has been discovered.
What about the Galaxy Peach?
Here is Galaxy Peach. Larger for sure. But about a week or so before it is fully ripe. Peach pits do not pop well out of hard, unripened peaches - so we decided to save Kevin's thumb for another week. To be continued....
