It's very hard to find good peaches these days. When I was a kid we had juicy, sweet, fuzzy peaches. The fuzziness was part of the experience and was a clue that you had a good one. While the juices inescapably ran down my chin, I was in extasy with how good it was. It was always my favorite fruit.

Alas, peaches in the supermarkets are now cannonballs and the ones at the organic food stores are bland or flavorless. And if I planted my own tree now, I be dead 10 years before the fruit would be picked. Life can be cruel.

One of the few fruits I've never tried to grow and you can't beat Japanese peaches, especially the ones from Okayama. I look forward to getting a big box from my friends down there every year.

The yellow clingstone peaches pictured in that bottom photo - I've never seen here in Japan.

Many are ok, but way too hard and not juice dripping everywhere succulent.

I'm going to search harder this year.
