| || ||Saturn (Saucer/Donut) Peach|
Also known as a Donut Peach, the Saturn Peach was named for its flat shape and sunken center. Descendants of the Chinese flat Peach, this variety is usually 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 inches in diameter and 1/2 inch tall with pale yellow skin tinged with a slight blush. The juicy white flesh boasts a low acid, sweet flavor with a hint of almond. The flesh is tender and perfect for those who love a sweet finish. Saturn Peaches are a freestone variety with a pit about the size of a pistachio nut, making them perfect for eating out-of-hand. Although they look unusual, Saturn Peaches can be used as any other Peach. Try grilling with olive oil and top with ginger creme fraiche.
