Treat your family or your office to the simplest, sweetest snack out there: stonefruit from the Masumoto Family Farm in Del Rey, CA. This week, we've got flats of the Flavor Crest Yellow Peach
It seemed almost silly to write our own description of this peach grown by amazing farmers and prolific writers, so we asked them to do it. According to Nikiko Masumoto, "Flavor Crest, a cousin of the Sun Crest and descendant of Gold Dust, dazzles with reds and yellows. What's underneath the surface is equally enchanting; this peach is full of sweetness and leaves a soprano note of acid-tang on the palate. We enjoy these especially in a 'peach caprese' salad, replacing tomatoes with peaches, fresh mozzarella, basil, and a shimmer of olive oil, salt & pepper. "
As described in The Perfect Peach
, Mas and Nikiko's amazing book, "This is the peach you take home to meet your parents: solid, sweet, understanding, outstanding flavor, blush color." -David Mas Masumoto
