In Japanese, peach is momo. You may have heard the story of Momotaro (peach boy)?!
Anyway, with summer upon us, the stone fruits are starting to pop up in the markets. Some, like the bing cherries are imported. But the bulk, like peaches and plums are local (meaning, grown somewhere in Japan).
I bought these peaches they were a little small, only the size of a tiny fist and only weighed about 100 grams each. They also weren't as expensive as they can sometimes get...298 yen.
These were good, the skin just peeled right off and the fruit was very juicy and sweet.
Looks like rainy season will start sometime next week for us...definitely not looking forward to that, but am looking forward to more of these summer fruits.
What fruits are you enjoying these days?
