Peaches are a wonderful fruit.  You can buy them all year round but at a price.  I personally believe that the best peaches are from Fredericksburg, Texas.  There is a dispute between Miss Patty and me that Georgia has be the best. The Texas peaches are only available the first three weeks of July but they are magnificent.  There are many benefits to peaches besides being low calorie and filling. Of course the first thing is that they have fiber which is good for your digestive tract among other locations in your system.  They also contain nearly ten milligrams of Vitamin C which is more than your average orange. It  also contains the nutrients through Vitamin C that promote collagen in your system.  Not only do peaches help you reach your daily recommended requirement for potassium but they also help lower your blood pressure. One of the real plusses is that it contains two hundred forty-three micrograms of beta carotene. So you can eat less carrots when they are in season.  Peaches are also great in summer salads and if not available fresh, they are nice in cans, preserved or juice.  Whichever way you eat them, they are delicious. The fruit Pecos was known for was cantaloupes.  Once the train came through, they were distributed throughout the state as they are today.  Now peaches can also be distributed throughout the state as well.  The first time I tried a Fredericksburg peach I could not fathom how delicious they were.  I was sorry to say that they were better than the ones my grandfather grew which I picked right off the tree.
