An Out of This World Fruit

While I was shopping a week ago and I happened to walk around the produce section of my local Fry’s supermarket, I noticed the following gold and orange-ish item that was being displayed next to the avocados.


donut or Saturn peach

It looked like a peach, but it was squat like a turbin or one of those small decorative pumpkins. It wasn’t completely round like most peaches. And then I noticed this sign:

These peaches, as noted below, are also called Saturn peaches so they really are “out of this world!”

I am not against donuts in any shape or form, but I have never heard of a donut peach. Have you? Here is another picture just for the record.

Upon investigation, I found this information:

Saturn’ peaches have an unusually flat shape, and are named for their resemblance to the rings of Saturn. They’re also called ‘Donut’ or ‘Doughnut’ peaches. In fact, many supermarkets package the flat peaches in long boxes like those used for doughnuts, and market them as a good-for-you snack food.

The Guardian Also had an article about them as well:
