August 22 is Eat a Peach Day! There are over 2,000 varieties of peaches to choose from, and all of them are a good source of Vitamin C. Although peaches are third most popular fruit grown in America, they actually originated in China where they're thought to be a symbol of longevity and immortality.

Peaches were originally planted in St. Augustine, Florida and, in 1571, were introduced by Franciscan monks to St. Simons and Cumberland islands along Georgia's coast. By the mid-1700's peaches and plums were cultivated by the Cherokee Indians. Georgia designated the peach as the official state fruit in 1995.

Grab a sweet, juicy peach and enjoy!
