Peach – Shimizu White Ice
A Japanese favourite fruit which is harvested late July to early August. The trademark of the milky white peach, is by bagging each individual fruit. This prevents the sun from producing its normal peach colour. Bagging also protects the fruit from pests and wind and rain. The protected environment inside the bag produces a soft, delicate fruit with skin that peels easily.
Shimizu White Peach, is the most famous variety, and it is referred to as the ‘Queen of Peaches’, for it has a splendid blend of soft texture, juice and sweet fragrance.
